Attention all members. The time has come for the fittest among you to claim the mantle of Commander-in-Chief. Hmm. It seems AVA, Appalachia's very own automated voting system, has decided it's time for another round of... full-contact democracy.— MODUS
Claim the most votes and be named President!

Race for the Presidency is a PVP-enabled event quest in Fallout 76.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Although Secretary-come-President Thomas Eckhart is long dead, the hacked voting system he used to engineer his rise to the Presidency remains active and operational. The Vault 76 dwellers can elect to replicate the process and become the most powerful man on the cinder called Appalachia.

Completing this quest grants the Enclave rank of "President of the United States," allowing access to the Executive Suite, and one Presidential Seal.

The Presidential Seals can be exchanged at a vending machine for the Presidential Power Armor, Presidential "power" suit, and the Presidential Gauss rifle which each cost 1 seal.

Detailed walkthroughEdit

The event is essentially a race across Appalachia, to collect ballots and endorsements from any active site. As expected, the player with the highest number of ballots deposited in the vote counter machines wins. The alterations made by Eckhart's men rigged the system to print ballots automatically, after all, and for the counters to accept any valid vote. The endorsements are a special element of the "election" - while they are located away from polling stations, they are worth a large number of votes.




Election resultsEdit

  • The election terminates after the timer elapses and the player with the highest number of votes becomes the next President. At this point, all they need to do is to Collect the Presidential Seal.
