Several factors are of special importance that influencing the designing a candidates campaign strategies: electoral system, the political party, the candidate, the electorate, and the special events in election process. In addition, this paper also discusses the effects of “allocation of votes”, one feature under current single-nontransferable-vote(SNTV) system and suggests that the strategy of “allocation of votes” will not work without certain contributing factors.
