Once you’ve arrived there, you’ll be greeted with the Run for President’s event description: “Win the election.” The first part of solving this event is pretty easy and simply involves stepping up onto the stage.

This will initiate the second part of the event, which is described as so: “Influence the voters.” It’s here where we found this particular event quite confusing. However, we did manage to get to the bottom of it.

What you’ll need to do is grab a person which is close by using your tongue. On a PlayStation controller, just tap the Square button, or on an Xbox controller, press the X button to do this.

Once you’ve licked someone with your tongue, drag them to the blue voting booth on the left side. Once you’ve placed them into the voting booth, they’ll vote. Funnily enough, you can actually just re-use the same person over and over if you so please; it still works. Once you’ve done this around eight times, you’ll win the election. Simple!

So, that about wraps things up for now. We hope this helped to clear up how to solve the Run for President event in Goat Simulator 3.
