Dastardly deeds! Shady Characters! Personal Attacks! Secrets! Lies! Mayhem! An unpredictable ending determined by democratic vote! The U.S. presidential election and The Mystery of Edwin Drood have quite a lot in common. Just as Americans are casting their votes, the characters of Drood are stepping into the political arena with their own campaigns.



Americans only get to vote for the U.S. presidency once every four years, but Broadway audiences get to vote nightly on who murders Edwin Drood. With the presidential election in full swing, Playbill.com has exclusive "election" campaigns from the cast, who will say anything to get your vote.

Take a look at each of the 11 potential murderers' campaign posters.

Read Playbill.com's coverage of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, now in previews at Studio 54.
