This is the seventeenth puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mayor Lowonida. To complete the puzzle, you must determine how many candidates have a chance at winning the election.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Candidate A was the winner of the pre-election poll. But that was just a poll.

Hint Two
    Elections are based on votes that are actually cast.

Hint Three
    In the actual election, voter turnout is a consideration. Not all of the 1000 electorate will necessarily vote.

Super Hint
    The pre-election poll results and the views of the electorate have not changed, but we don't know how many of the one thousand people polled ended up actually voting in the proper election. The result could vary dramatically depending on who turned up to vote.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

This is a question of possibility, not probability.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

Not everyone who answered in the pre-election poll is obliged to vote. As we don't know how many people will end up voting, that means all three candidates are still in with a chance.

[edit] Solution

All three candidates have a chance to win.

[edit] Progress

635 Picarats and 51 Hint Coins.
