Voters still holding out hope for some alternative to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton during this election season got their wish in the form of mock third-party option from HBO: the GOT (“Game of Thrones”) Party.
Fans of the hit fantasy series can vote for one of four candidates in the primary election during the month of August. By ballot or blade, an official party nominee and running mate will be unveiled on Sept. 1. And along the way, HBO will promote the release of season six of the show to various streaming services.
The candidates include Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, and Petyr Baelish. The platforms for all four are spelled out under their respective banners.
In early voting, Snow and his running mate Lyanna Mormont, hold a strong lead over the second-place Mother of Dragons. Lord Littlefinger is third and Cersei is a distant fourth.
Snow’s platform calls for Northern sovereignty, rebuilding the Night’s Watch, allowing the Free Folk to settle the Gift, inheritance rights of illegitimate children, and preparing for the Long Night.
