Karl finds himself in a race for "Spring King" at Grove City College in this episode. Of course, his election headquarters is next to the shower. We dragged a typewriter and a recording of a teletype and a telephone into the bathroom.
Keith Parrish, Mike Pfeifer, and Andy Schrum, and Paul McGill portrayed election workers. I was also an election worker and the ubiquitous announcer.
This episode mirrored real life--we were attempting to get Karl voted Spring King, so that he would get to dance with the May Queen at the big dance. Voting was done for charity--just drop your change into a jar. This made it fairly simple to stuff the ballot box.
Election results are announced in the next episode--keep your fingers crossed and your chads hanging. Onto Campaign '85 and another promo!
