Arrogant men in white

Extract from someone's facebook. 

An hour ago, some men in white came knocking at my door. They greeted my mom & I, shook our hands while their photographers snapped pictures relentlessly. One man handed my mom a folded flyer and pointed his photo on the flyer to her saying, “That is me.” 
Another man looked into my house, saw that there were more people in the house and commented loudly, “Five more inside. We have seven votes now.”
And the man who pointed himself out in the flyer looked at us and said in a telling tone, “You all are voting for us.” With that, he turned and went into my neighbour’s house.

Dear sir,
I agree with you that there are seven votes. But with due respect, please, please don’t be so arrogant and assume that all seven votes will go to you. (Wait a minute, why the need to “respect” when you don’t deserve it to start with?)

So, why did you pop up at my house all of a sudden? All these years while your team members are governing our estate, why have we not seen any of your faces at all? Well, if you feel guilty about neglecting us, I don’t mind you coming over to say hello and to CHAT. I’d be glad to spend time with you in a Q&A session. But do not come disrupt me from my favourite “Criminal Minds” playing on cable at that time, show face in front of the camera and TELL us (like your boss always does) what to do.

This must be a variation of the Singapore "chope" system.

I put tissue paper on table in food court means I reserve the seat.

I visit your house means I ..... ???

Heard that the PAP is supremely confident of victory. With the exception of Aljunied, they have put down the deposits for the victory celebrations of yet another 5 good years !

In the off chance than George and Co somehow survive, they have even made contingency plans for extra tables at the Marine Parade celebration.

Chee Soon Juan should restrain himself or else he will screw up his party's chance in the election. He is barred and he should stay barred and know waht he can and cannot do during the husting.

On second thought,
the house-to-house visits have been performed over a period of 40 plus years.

If meticulous records (based on interactions) are kept, it may be possible to develop a detailed map on a HDB block-by-block basis as to how voters will vote.
