The results are guaranteed to be shocking. (Run time: 10 minutes)Lending their voice this episode is Bonnie Kenderdine.

The polls are now closed in Grassssssside Greene. As well as everything else here in town. This place rolls up the sidewalk at dusk. Probably a good idea after their legendary zombie invasion. But back to the elections. As you know, by this point, this reporter would normally be able to project a winner.

Every citizen over the age of 18 was allowed to vote, and the ballot is 100% write-in, making it impossible to call the election early. Gah. Don't these people know I have a hard-out at 9 PM. Apparently reruns of "Cougar Town" score big with our core demographic. Who are you people?DANNY:I love "Cougar Town"!
