About a week before Election Day, I did the following (as a joke):
1) I made a pattern that said "VOTE FOR JAKE" in blue letters on a white background. 2) I bought sign boards from Nook. 3) I put the sign boards around town, and put the "VOTE FOR JAKE" pattern on them.
Of course, there never was any election - evidently Tortimer's term is lifetime, and considering he's a tortoise, that could be a long time.
Too bad he retired in New Leaf. NL's mayor feature was a huge disappointment to me. Look at what Tortimer could do when he was mayor! He could hold events and holidays, he could sleep all day without any consequences, and there was no Isabelle to annoy him!
I want Tortimer to be mayor again, like in the old games.
Then again, he did have a good island after he retired...
