This year, like every year since the early 1980s, Chinese villages will hold local elections.

The practice, which began during the country's period of political and economic reforms, allows anyone over the age of 18 to run, but in many villages the ballot sheet is limited to a single candidate.

Despite the lack of choices, elections still move forward, with even unopposed candidates campaigning as in any other election.

Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan reports from Shandong Province.
