Mercí City is a place with so many heroes running for office (and, of course, shirking their duties to go punch Lady Lava in the middle of the day) that people start to prefer actual career politicians, and having a cape career really hurts one's career

also, there's so many supervillains trying to steal political office in one way or another that the media covers it at least as much as the actual election

as with a lot of my cape kink stuff, it exists on multiple levels based on what's most fun to think about at the moment, from "it's purely a kink thing" to "it's a whole thing that goes on in the shadows" to "yes, there are capes, everyone knows about it and plans for its effects on everyday life"

capes trying to steal office used to go by the euphemism "write-in candidate", especially when a pretty popular move was to simply threaten/blackmail/mind control people into writing your name on the ballot, but the media seems to have settled on the punchier term, "Dark Ballot" and "Dark Candidate".

"Shadow Ballot/Candidate/Race" is popular, too.

Shelia Rogers/Zyzzytryx was the first undisputed* shadow candidate to "come to light" and win the election fair and square after her failed ploy to hold the treasury hostage. She held the seat for a pretty productive and noncontroversial six years before the city's aggressive term limits** kicked in.

* lotta mind controllers, ballot fraudsters, multiple-level-deep gambits, and so on make it hard to tell if a given race was really won fairly
** designed to limit the havoc a subverted or fraudulent office holder could wreak, you see
