SINGAPORE: Nine days of campaigning for Singapore’s general election wrapped on Wednesday (Jul 8). Candidates had to improvise in their outreach efforts to adhere to safe-distancing guidelines amid a COVID-19 pandemic. Gone were the usual handshakes and large rallies. Instead, candidates intensified their ground efforts, fanning out at coffeeshops and going door-to-door for face time with residents, speaking up to make themselves heard through masks, and giving them fist bumps, elbow bumps and salutes along the way.

Here’s a look back at some of the moments from the campaign trail.
