'Whistle-stop' nghĩa là dừng chân giây lát để tiếp xúc với cử tri (ứng cử viên, trên đường đi vận động bầu cử).

Ví dụ
Italian Barbara Guarischi bookended a whistle-stop visit to the capital by winning the Prudential RideLondon GP on The Mall on Saturday evening.

Liz Kendall is to embark on a three-day whistle-stop tour of Britain in a bid to revive her Labour leadership charges, conceding she has "a hell of a long way to go" to persuade people to back her.

Jamie Spencer, who won a Group 1 in Germany on Sunday, is hoping his whistle-stop visit to Chicago on Saturday can pay off when Secret Gesture bids to become the latest British-trained winner of the Beverly D Stakes.
