An election is held two times every month. Each election ends on the 1st and 15th and the polls are open up until those dates.

These polling stations are used to vote for a candidate. They will also show the message written by the candidate when they registered.
These polling stations are also used to register as a candidate. When registering the registree has the option to fill out a message, showed to everyone who wishes to vote.
