You will be taken to Mission Majority, which, per The Washington Post, is "a 2014 midterm election-themed video game.  It stars an elephant named Giopi. 

The Post adds:

In 2012, President Obama's reelection team tried to use video games as a campaign tool too -- although their method didn't involve building an entire game. The Obama team bought ads in existing video games. Cars on Need for Speed would pass billboards that said things like, "Early Voting Has Begun."
