Special Rules

Most non-Voter cards have certain requirements to be played.

Politicians

A Voter Supports a Politician when they have a stance on a issue in common, and Opposes a Politician when they have opposing stances in a issue. A Politician may be put into play if there's a number (indicated on the card) of Voters in play that Support it. One Supporting Voter cancels one Opposing Voter.

Influence cards - Represent changes of mind and topic pushings. Add to a politician's stances and influence.

Legalworks

Laws - Passed by the Parties (players). Require a combination of players holding the majority of Politicians in play to approve them.

Acts - Passed by Politicians, or happen because of the general political mood. Have a certain stance. Require the majority of Politicians in play to be Supporting the stance.

Public - Result of non-governmental effort. Require a certain number of Voters under your control, perhaps Supporting a certain issue.

Primaries

Any Party may announce Primaries on their turn. On each Party's turn thereafter, that Party must turn one of its Politicians into a Candidate if possible. When all Parties have nominated Candidates, the game ends and the Candidate with the most support wins.
