Cast your vote for the GOT Party
Election season is heating up, and HBO is encouraging viewers to do their patriotic duty and cast their ballots — for who they think should sit on the Iron Throne.
To herald the arrival of Game of Thrones season 6 on digital platforms (including iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon), the finest marketing minds in Westeros have launched a campaign for the “GOT Party.” On the campaign website, fans are encouraged to vote — “by ballot or blade,” but really just by ballot — for one of four candidates and their respective running mate.
Daenerys Targaryen is running with Tyrion Lannister on a platform of freeing the known world, rebuilding the dragon population, and empowering women, while rival Jon Snow is pledging to establish northern sovereignty and rebuild the Night’s Watch alongside Lyanna Mormont. Also in the race are expert politicos Cersei Lannister (with Qyburn) and Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (with the intriguing running mate Sansa Stark).
At the time of writing, the Snow-Mormont ticket is leading with 59% of the votes, but the booths will remain open all month, with the winner to be crowned Sept. 1. Read up on the issues and choose your candidate at thegotparty.com.
