Streets all across the country are decorated with banners, slogans, and colorful flags to celebrate national election day. Everywhere, citizens are informed of the election through loudspeakers.
Loudspeakers are used to inform voters about the election
Mo De commune in Mu Cang Chai district, Yen Bai province, has more than 3,000 eligible voters. Communications about the election through loudspeakers has proven very effective. Sung A So, a local cultural officer, said, "I turn on the loudspeaker twice a day, in the morning and afternoon. Portable loudspeakers travel to the villages at least once every three days, when locals are at home, so they can learn about the election."
These messages help locals understand the meaning and importance of the election, as well as their rights and obligations, so they will choose the best deputies. Voter Sung A Lu of Na Hang village said, "We met with the candidates, listened to their action plans, and are looking forward to voting for the best people to represent the voices and aspirations of the voters."
