  • Abstract Election is the fundamental system to maintain one’s political leadership a democratic country.Election will decide the development of political system and fulfill the spirit of democracy.This is a study about Kaohsiung City mayor voter votes factor of the choice in the 2002 and 2006 Election.
    The results of the research are as follows:--
    1. In 2002, there are three causes that make a voter to change his decision in choosing a candidate. They are the age of a voter, the education level of the voter, and his personal racial group in the society. These three causes influence a voter’s recognition of another racial group in the society, his stand on the problem of Taiwan being united or divided from one China, his point of view on how much support a candidate will get from his party and other parties, a voter’s evaluation of a candidate’s behavior and conduct. We found that the difference between a voter and another voter shows very distinct or extremely distinct in making a decision.In 2006, there are two causes that make a voter to change his mind in choosing a candidate. They are the education level of the voter, and his personal racial group in the society. These two causes influence a voter’s recognition of another racial group, his stand on the problem of Taiwan being united or divided from China, his point of view on how much support a candidate will get from his party and other parties, a voter’s evaluation of a candidate’s behavior and conduct. We found that the difference between voters and voters showed very distinct different or extremely distinct different in making a decision.Briefly speaking, a voter’s individual personality and his living social background, are the reasons that really related to his stand on the problem of Taiwan being separated from China or not. And we found that a voter’s personality related to his stand point on the problem of Taiwan being separated or not from one China, apparently influence a voter’s decision more in the election of 2002 than in that of 2006.
    2. Both in the study of the election in 2002 and 2006, we found it made no difference in making a choice of a candidate if the voter is female or male. The result does not achieve the standard of difference level(P>00.5). .
    Besides the voters’ age related to the choice of a candidate appeared “rather difference”, the voters’ personal education level, their racial group, and their income, with their individual social background were the reasons that influenced a voter’s decision when making a choice of a candidate.
    These reasons related to a voter’s decision “appear apparently different and extremely different.”
    3. In the research of both the election in 2002 and in 2006, except that people’s evaluation of Huang Tian-Shang related to the voters’ decision of making a choice, did not apparently achieve the standard of difference level (P>00.5), that is, except that the variety factors related to the voters’ decision , did not appear apparently difference level , other variety factors related to the voters’ decision in making a choice, “apparently appeared difference level .”
