Local election were held on 24 November 2018[2][3] in Taiwan, to elect county magistrates (city mayors), county (city) councilors, township mayors, township councilors and chiefs of village (borough) in 6 municipalities and 16 counties (cities). Elected officials would serve a four-year term. Polling stations were open from 08:00 to 16:00 on the election day.[4]

The elections resulted in a substantial defeat for the DPP. The DPP previously held 13 of 22 municipalities and counties, but won only 6 in this election due to widespread public distrust, a de facto vote of no confidence on President Tsai's Administration, both politically (relations with China), economically (agriculture, tourism), and socially (pollution, labor laws, wages), which were reflected in the series of referendum results. The KMT has won back executive control of 7 municipalities and counties from the DPP, while Ko Wen-je won his re-election for Taipei mayor.

Seats up for election[edit]

This local election is the first test for the incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen since assuming office in May 2016. The results may affect the next legislative and presidential election in January 2020. The Central Election Commission opened election registration to candidates on 27 August 2018.[5]

Referendum[edit]

A multi-question referendum was held 24 November 2018 alongside local elections. The referendum as the first since the December 2017 reform to the Referendum Act which reduced the barrier to submitting questions to the ballot; under the new system, signatures from 1.5% of the electorate (around 280,000 people) are required to successfully put a question on the ballot.[7] The referendum needed to have at least 25% of registered voters' support, down from at least 50% registered voters in 2005.[8]

The ten questions which appeared on the ballot are (with original Chinese language in parentheses):[9]
