Mr. Garrison, having been re-hired as a kindergarten teacher, starts off the year by holding an election for class president. The two contenders are Ike (Kyle's little brother) and boy named Filmore. The election comes down to a tie, with arguments breaking out over votes from absent students and a girl named Flora who can't make up her mind. Meanwhile, a strange man shows up at school claiming he's a robot from the future sent to destroy Cartman's new Trapper Keeper.

The vote for class president parodies the 2000 US presidential election between George W. Bush
and Al Gore
. Notable similarities include the inconclusive results, endless demands for recounts, the "absentee voters", controversy concerning unclear voting ballots, alleged nepotism by a candidate's family member (in that case George Bush's brother Jeb Bush
), and the ensuing legal action though lawyers. The indecisive student with the deciding vote is named Flora, a reference to Florida having the decisive electoral votes but being too close to call for several weeks. See more
