A man, dressed in grey pants and a light blue polo shirt, walks from villager to villager handing out sheets of paper, showing the Cambodian People’s Party’s ballot position for Sunday’s commune elections. His face illuminated only by the light from his cellphone, he asks: “Do you know who I am? Do you support me?” In most cases, the answer is a nod of the head.
