I'm very much my age emotionally; maybe even younger
—Dawson to Jen
The Election is the 9th episode of Season 2 of Dawson's Creek.


THE POLITICS OF HIGH SCHOOL – Joey (Katie Holmes) joins Andie (Meredith Monroe) and Pacey's (Joshua Jackson) crusade to bring decency back to politics in the sophomore class election, but when their opponent Abby (Monica Keena) throws down the gauntlet by insulting Joey's father and digging up Andie's dark family history, there is no telling how ugly things could get. Meanwhile, Dawson (James Van Der Beek), whose screenwriting is suffering from his adult perspective, hesitantly accepts Jen's (Michelle Williams) tantalizing offer to help him experience the dark pain and exhilaration that comes with being a teenager, while Mitch (John Wesley Shipp) and Gale (Mary-Margaret Humes) use a plumbing emergency as an excuse to rekindle their amorous furniture fetish.
