* In the SchoolFestival arc of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', the class votes on what they want their activity to be. The player is given several options to vote for, but [[ButThouMust it doesn't matter which one you pick]], because "Group Date Cafe" wins by an overwhelming majority.

* When we first meet Haruka in ''Anime/MaiHime'', she's the student council's disciplinary executive which appears to be a means by which she can foist her own ideas about "morals" and "values" onto the rest of the student body. Neither the Student Council President or Vice President (Shizuru and Reito) seemed inclined to stop her. As an omake and subsequent episodes show [[spoiler: Haruka originally ran against Shizuru for Student Council President, largely on the same platform that she's enforcing now. She lost by a landslide (817 votes for Shizuru vs. 12 votes for her) since the average student isn't particularly interested in a MoralGuardian hovering over them. Shizuru keeps Haruka around to do the unpleasant tasks for the Student Council so she can keep her hands clean. An early hint that Shizuru is not quite all sweetness and light.]]
* That's how Medaka Kurokami becomes the student council president in ''Manga/MedakaBox'', winning with 98% of votes. Her campaign for reelection was nowhere that easy.
* During ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' ''Series 1'', there was an episode that involved NiceGuy Masaharu running against AlphaBitch Tamaki. He was about to back out after delivering a WorldOfCardboardSpeech, but Tamaki goaded him into continuing due to her {{Pride}}. Only two people voted for Tamaki while everyone else voted for Masaharu.

** Inverted at the end of ''¡Elecciones!'': turns out that there's a ridiculously big amount of parties in the running, and as a result each of them only gets one vote... except for a single candidate who manages to gather two votes and is subsequently named president.

* Exaggerated in ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'' story "El candidato". The Superintendent decides to run for president of Spain, and the result is a spectacular failure: his rival, Marcelino Cascajo, is elected with 38 million votes, while the Superintendent only gets one vote -- his own.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In the season 5 episode ''[[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E19CrusadersOfTheLostMark Crusaders of the Lost Mark]]'', Pipsqueak runs for class president against Diamond Tiara. Diamond's campaign is based on getting a huge statue of herself at the school; she resorts to blackmail and bribery to try to get votes. Pipsqueak's goal is to get new playground equipment to replace what was damaged or destroyed during Twilight's fight with Tirek in the season 4 finale, and runs a fair campaign (with the help of the Crusaders), which leads to him getting every vote but Diamond Tiara's (she votes for herself, naturally).

* At the end of ''Storm of Swords'', the third book of ''Series/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the Night's Watch needs to vote for a new Lord Commander. They've spent nine days with about nine or so candidates and none even coming close to the necessary two-thirds of the votes. King Stannis demanded on the tenth day that the Night's Watch ''would'' choose a commander, or they wouldn't eat. Earlier that day, Sam convinced the two leading candidates to support [[spoiler: Jon Snow]], and his friend Edd offered [[spoiler: Jon]]'s name for consideration that night. On the tenth night of the voting, a ''very'' surprised [[spoiler: Jon Snow]] wins. By a ''lot''.
