Edgar: "A vote for me is a vote for weekly beauty pageants in the town hall, which I will convert into a subterranean vehicle of some kind."
Terra: "What does it mean to win an election? Will I ever understand that feeling?"
Cloud: "When did I decide to run for office? How did I enter the election? Why can't I remember?"
Aeris: "If elected, I pledge to transform all the city's wasteland into flower gardens."
Yuffie: "Sign this. It's a contract stating that when the election is over, I get to keep all the tax money."
Squall: "Voting is a waste of time. You can't rely on the council for anything. You've only got yourself to depend on."
Seifer: "I will be the mayor's loyal knight. You wouldn't understand, chicken-wuss."
Raijin: "I think Seifer'd make a pretty good mayor himself, ya know?"
Selphie: "Booyaka! Elect me so that I can table tons of awesome legislation! You should see the list of amendments I've made for my first council meeting! It's this big!"
Vivi: "If no-one votes for me, does that mean I don't exist?"
Quina: "Campaign leaflets yummy! Ballot papers yummy! Incumbent councillor not taste so good."
Aki: "My dreams hold the key to winning the election. I'm sure of it."
