The island needs a well, but no one has the authority to order any sort of digging. Thus, the castaways decide to hold an election to appoint a "president" of the island. As the front-running candidates, the Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.) and Mr. Howell (Jim Backus) resort to every underhanded trick in the book to win the election. As a result of this skullduggery, the race is won by a surprise write-in candidate--namely, Gilligan (Bob Denver)! This episode was originally telecast four days before the 1964 Presidential Election, which of course went to Lyndon Johnson by a landslide.
