Democracy, what democracy can there be in such a place as The Village? It’s nothing more than a detention centre where people are put who are of no longer any interest, there to remain forgotten by the outside world for as long as they shall live! To be used by those who dwell within as they see fit. The election is but for the benefit of Number 6, to weaken him, to make him talk at the end. But at least Number 6 knows that they have many ways and means, but do not wish to damage him permanently. That could well give Number 6 an edge in future episodes.
Be seeing you
