The seventh season of “Game of Thrones” is on the distant horizon, which means we can all spend our time speculating over the copious amount of material we already have. Thankfully HBO is not leaving us to our own devices to pass the time. They are allowing us to vote. Yes, there is a “GoT Party” election and Hidden Remote has everything you need to know about it right here.

In this first piece, all of the candidates are broken down and weighed in on - from Jon Snow (Kit Harington) to Peter "Littlefinger" Baelish (Aidan Gillen) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). Why cover this particular poll? Well it has been set up by HBO so official eyeballs are focused on this one. Plus, it provides a unique peak into the “Thrones” fandom like never before. A vote for the GoT Party is a heavy hint as to whose side people are rooting for to win the Iron Throne.
