It's election time, and we've got the final tally on who some of your favorite TV characters have campaigned or voted for in the past. (There are no hanging chads here!) Check out who rocked the retro vote and find out which modern-day character is a Romney man.
Richie Cunningham -- Campaigned for Adlai StevensonWho can forget when happy-go-lucky Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard) campaigned for Adlai Stevenson on the classic sitcom, "Happy Days"? His Republican dad, Howard, (Tom Bosley) was fuming, but how else was Rich supposed to get a date with the cute girl on the election committee? And while it was no shocker that conservative Howie voted for President Eisenhower in the 1956 election, it was more of a surprise that Fonzie (Henry Winkler) also liked Ike. Fonzie's speech at an Eisenhower rally: "Hey, he won the war for ya, didn't he? If Ike loses, the Fonz is going to be maaaad! I like Ike. My bike likes Ike!" Check out Richie and Fonzie's totally opposite speeches here.
Don Draper -- Voted for Richard Nixon"Mad Men's" lead character, Don Draper (Jon Hamm), is Republican to the core. (But is his alter ego, Dick Whitman?) During the 1960 presidential election, Draper's advertising agency did some work for Richard Nixon's campaign against John F. Kennedy, with the ad man famously saying: "Kennedy? Nouveau riche, a recent immigrant who bought his way into Harvard. Nixon is from nothing. Abe Lincoln of California, a self-made man. Kennedy, I see a silver spoon. Nixon, I see myself."
Winnie Cooper -- Campaigned for George McGovernIt was politics as usual on retro series "The Wonder Years" when girl-next-door Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) volunteered to work for a 1972 George McGovern campaign. But was this future math all-star really smitten with the Democratic candidate? More likely her heart belonged to the charismatic guy who headed the campaign committee. Sorry, Kev!
Archie Bunker -- Voted for Richard NixonYou don't want to talk religion or politics with this guy. On the 1970s sitcom "All in the Family," loudmouth Archie Bunker was an avid supporter of Richard Nixon, patronizing anyone who didn't share his political views. But it looks liked Republican voting wasn't all in the family. Bunker's son-in-law, Mike Stivic (Rob Reiner), was a diehard liberal who donated $275 to George McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign. And in 1976, Archie's wife, Edith (Jean Stapleton), voted for Democrat Jimmy Carter.
Alex P. Keaton -- Campaigned for President Richard Nixon and President Ronald ReaganOn the Reagan-era sitcom "Family Ties," ultra-conservative Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox) was the polar opposite of his liberal, hippie parents. Alex was a Young Republican who carried a Nixon lunchbox as a child, and in a flashback, campaigned for him in the 1972 election. Alex also worshipped then-President Ronald Reagan. According to the Museum of Broadcast Communications, President Reagan returned the love: He once said that "Family Ties" was his favorite show.
Homer Simpson -- Voted for Mitt RomneyIn 2008, "The Simpsons" patriarch, Homer, attempted to vote for Barack Obama (a machine glitch had his vote inadvertently go to John McCain), but for 2012 he's had a change of heart. "I already got one wife telling me to eat healthy," he mutters, referencing first lady Michelle Obama's healthy eating campaign. Actually, it seems as though Homer doesn't want to vote at all ("Why do we have to choose our leader? Isn't that what we have the Supreme Court for?" he asks), but in the end, he votes Romney. Watch Homer cast his vote -- and the hilarious aftermath -- here.
