* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: Bob goes for ballot-stuffing in an election where Quimby may have actually had a ZeroPercentApprovalRating. Justified as he didn't know how guaranteed the race was and his rant at the end shows he didn't expect Springfield to vote Republican even if they secretly wanted to.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Handwaved}}: Lisa can have the results of the votes ''and'' the voters identity because no one cares. This is vital to find out Bob stuffed the ballots with dead people.


Added DiffLines:

* OpenSecret: Apparently who you voted for mayor is not anonymously done and everyone can learn it.
