Of course you are also voting for their running mate as well. You get to choose from Daenerys Targaryen and her running mate Tyrion Lannister. Their platform is simple, freeing the known world, repopulating the dragons and empowering women. Jon Snow is running with Lyanna Mormont, and they plan on bringing the North back into power. Cersei Lannister is also running, with Qyburn, and she’s planning on separating church and state, revising the line of succession for the iron throne, and bailing out the iron bank. The last to run is Petyr Baelish (otherwise known as Littlefinger) and his running mate Sansa Stark. He’s all about reducing debt, small business growth and diplomatic ties to the North.

At the moment, Jon Snow is in the lead with 50% of the 19 million votes casted. The winner of the vote will be named on September 1st.
