The US presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for 8 November 2016, where the 45th President of the United States will likely be determined. Discussions and debates surrounding the event have been charged, to say the least. This is an excellent opportunity to cut through the hype and the rhetoric to explore the nature and depictions of elections, both within reality and in fiction.

To be a part of this historic conversation, PopMatters seeks submissions about elections in popular media, including but not limited to: presidential elections as they are represented in the media, political elections within film and television; high-school / sorority elections in media; film policy shifts, pledges, and promises; award voting controversies; the sci-fi and western genres and elections; nominated / randomly / unwittingly selected participants; and electoral commentary in videogames, cartoons, literature and other media.
