With Election, Payne announces himself as one of the keenest purveyors of the scattered pieces that once was an American morality.
An invigoratingly mordant comedy that proves that Alexander Payne's rambunctious debut, Citizen Ruth, was no fluke.
Alexander Payne is a director whose satire is omnidirectional. He doesn't choose an easy target and march on it. He stands in the middle of his story and attacks on all directions.

- When Paul is at the microphone giving thanks for his "victory", Tracy is seen in the background wearing a jacket with a zipper. In the previous scene and the one right after, she is wearing only a turtleneck.
- Tammy Metzler: It's not like I'm a lesbian or anything. I'm attracted to the person. It's just that all the people I've been attracted to happen to be girls.
