Unfortunately, ice cream can't run for president. But, from now until November 6, you can cast your vote by eating a scoop at Superstition Farm's ice cream shop. Head to Udder Delights to select one of two political flavors: Ba-Rocky Road or Mint Romney.

These flavors originally appeared during the 2008 election, when ice cream tasters foresaw the future, choosing Mint Romney over John Candy Cane in a landslide victory. This year's election results will show just how clairvoyant those taste buds were -- during the last presidential race, the Republican Romney creamed the Democratic Ba-Rocky by nearly three scoops to two.
Note: Voting via ice cream is not recognized by the U.S. government.
