Game of Thrones 2016 Election Is On #GOT2016

Much of the media is busy covering the presidential election taking place in December. But what about the Westeros? Who should sit on the Iron Throne? Let your voice count in the GOT2016 campaign page.

HBO took the opportunity to let those who feel “left out” of the power struggle, and have them cast their vote in who should sit on the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones fans can now head over to the new and official 2016 campaign site, and choose between the candidates on hand. These candidates are Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, who happens to currently reside at the throne.

A video campaign has also been launched, which you can find below –
