Six Word Story Challenge: Elections

The Six Word Story Challenge of this week is all about ELECTIONS.

An election is a formal decision-making process by which a population chooses an individual to hold public office. Elections have been the usual mechanism by which modern representative democracy has operated since the 17th century. Elections may fill offices in the legislature, sometimes in the executive and judiciary, and for regional and local government. This process is also used in many other private and business organizations, from clubs to voluntary associations and corporations.

To elect means to choose or make a decision and so sometimes other forms of ballot such as referendums are referred to as elections, especially in the United States.

Apart from politics, there are also other kind of elections. Think of beauty queens and song contests for example.




The challenge for you:

Write a story about ELECTIONS in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.


Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…

Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.

Will you join me? Will you? Say you do. :) And share the challenge news!

I look forward to your stories.

Caretaker of lads and cats. No lady, but all woman. RPGamer. Avid reader. Writing my first book, squeezing in time during busy days. And nights if needed. Because I'd love to introduce you to the wonderful people who are living in my mind.

      1. Thank you. Often the feeling was maybe the heavens will open up and it will downpour before they get through the list. Thanks for visiting. Credit for the photo goes to originator and my ability to master google images search.
