- Can you actually cast a vote yourself as the one line somebody stuck in there at the end of a section suggests? If you only have either Rosie or Bob run for election is it possible to convince the one who isn't running to vote for the one who is?
Getting Dave's key for You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head
- Yes, you can. I tailed Dave at a short distance, staying at the edge of visibility in daytime. He hadn't made it half a kilometer from the compound before he was jumped and killed by a Giant Radscorpion (which I subsequently killed), leaving me free to loot his corpse. This does also illustrate that you can't count on him making it to Old Olney by himself.

- From the article: "If you convince Bob and Rosie to run for president and rig it so that they tie, Dave stays as president. He should say "There was a tie. Under these unique circumstances, I'll have to remain the leader until we know the results for sure" which is one of the dialogs in the game files, but in-game he would often say either Bob or Rosie won, and not leave the republic." --Voidvector 00:37, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
PS3 Rosie and Bob run
"If you convince both Bob and Rosie to run for president and either: Remove all votes, leaving the ballot box empty OR Remove all Dave's votes, leaving one for Bob and one for Rosie will state that Rosie won, storm off, and: Bob's conversation will contain only the "sorry you lost" dialogue option AND Rosie's conversation will contain only the "sorry you lost" dialogue option"
- If you talk to Dave before he storms off (have to do it quick!), he will actually leave and go to Old Olney (rather than to his office), where he will sit by himself. If you have a high sneak skill, it is very easy to pickpocket him as he sits there, and retrieve his Special Key.Deboriole 04:48, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
I ran into this situation on PS3 while playing and decided to see what effect the mesmetron would have on the outcome after neither won and Dave remained and I used it while hidden on Dave. As luck would have it made him hostile towards the citizens causing Rosie and Jessica (his 2 wives) to gun him down while he was attacking me. Since they killed him this made them stay friendly to me and I was able to picpocket Dave's corpse and get the key to open the safe thereby getting Ol' Painless. Afterwards when asking any of the citizens about the election they say "Are you kidding? Dave is dead. How can there be election with a dead candidate?" Also the citizens will give several responses about the future of the republic or lack thereof now that Dave is dead.
Rosie Bug Source
The election bug would seem to be caused by an error in the speech choices for Rosie that allows the player to convince her to run for president after she is told to vote. If the player attempts to speak to her about running in the election too near Dave she will respond that she won't talk about that where he might hear. In order to get her to actually run in the election, the speech choice must be done away from Dave(for example, in the next room) and before reminding her to vote. If she is told to vote then convinced to run for office her ballot is listed as for 'Dave' but she is still recognized as also running in the election by the other voters. The only way to keep the quest from breaking at that point, is when rigging the election, to make sure Bob runs and leaving at least one ballot in the ballot box.22.214.171.124 04:44, September 9, 2009 (UTC)
Problem with Shawna
I was talking to Shawna after being told to go tell the adults to vote, and I said that the stuff in the mu\seum of Dave looked like a bunch of junk. Apparently that was enough to make her never talk to me again. Every time I try to talk to her she says "I have nothing more to say to you. You are the most unDave-like person I have ever met." and she walks away. Because of this, I cannot tell her to go vote. Because I cannot tell her to go vote, I cannot complete the quest. Any ideas?
Try killing Shawna in her sleep with Sandman.
when does dave tell every1 if he has won or not
No matter how fast I click on the ballot box (basically button-mashing as soon as he walks up to it), he always manages to get one out for himself, seemingly before he even unlocks it. Were there supposed to be more than 4 votes for him in there?
Well, I guess a presidential assassination is in order.
