  • Archie, unsurprisingly, opposes the candidate Mike and Gloria are supporting for town council. Archie then surprises Mike and Gloria by saying he is not going to vote because he feels his vote is too good for local elections.

    "The Election Story" is an episode I like very much because it shows a very sad fact in the United States that is just as much true today as it was when this episode premiered: many people who complain about the current political state do absolutely nothing to attempt to change it and stay home on election day. You see it quite often with celebrities who try to get people to vote for certain candidates and then don't vote themselves. "The Election Story" makes light of this very sad fact which is why I think it's worth watching.
