I would like to remind everyone that a) last year's election made heavy use of Flash Lays b) when doing a Flash Lay, it's really important that your Menaces are low (except wounds). I am unpleasantly surprised by this every time I do one. I will be spending the rest of the weekend lowering menaces, and I encourage others to do similar.

Another big mechanic was Investigations, which I prefer to advance through faction cards. Now that more factions use Favors, does Investigating generally consume a Favor?

In order to get a faction's help in an investigation you have to have at least one favor, so I think it's safe to assume that investigating with a faction does consume favors.

Does advancing your career during election increase by levels or by CPs?

If it's like last year it should be by levels.

were there any mechanics or otherwise last time that were resource intensive?.
I ask because I want to know if zorgan needs to start committing even more robberies than normal?.

Grinding Notability will be worthwhile.

There are also Flash Lays and Investigations and Short Stories, if the mechanics don't change any. And throwing parties. And putting out an edition of your newspaper.

that all sounds fun and all but I hope I have the ability to break into their residences for simple information or even blackmail material.
zorgan is a master thief and would consider it child's play.
I have a free contraption though so he should be able to print a special edition to 'help' the people choose their candidate..

What things gained during the election will last past it? Items or qualities or whatever?

I'm not too enthusiastic about any of the candidates so I don't really feel like putting a lot of effort just into helping one of them win, but if there's persistent qualities to acquire I'll want to grab them.

Presuming it's like last year (therefore subject to being quite, quite wrong...)

there's an option to get One Free Thing upfront (more if you wanna pay fate). And an Accomplishment. And a persistent Seasonal quality saying how many ranks you advanced your electoral career. I don't think these two have affected anything else though.

I wonder if that will be updating soon actually. Hmm.

Items last, of course, and in the "Major Lateral" section of my qualities it says to whom I pledged my support in the last election. Not that I recall that quality ever coming up, except during that election.
