Hello boys and girls! Welcome to this Election's Riddle!
It has become tradition that we leak part of the Election results out, but only available after solving a series of intricate riddles and challenges.
Let's begin with setting a couple of rules...

RULES FOR ME:
1. I will not lie. If I provide you with any form of information in or outside of the riddle, it will be true.
2. Additionally, any information, guidance or description provided with a riddle will never intentionally mislead you.
3. For the sake of simplicity, passwords will always be without spaces in between the words or segments.
4. I will use "," (comma) as a decimal point. Not "." (full stop).

RULES FOR YOU:
1. Do not publish or mass-share any solutions to parts of the riddle. If people get stuck, I might help them out after some time.
2. Especially do not publish or mass-share any Election information you may have figured out.
3. Teams are allowed, but again, no mass-sharing. 
4. If you think I made a mistake, tell me. Do not try to exploit a possible mistake.
 
 
Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let's begin, shall we?
This time, I've tried to make the Riddle long rather than hard. As a result, everyone should be able to do the first challenges without getting stuck all too long, but they get tougher along the way. If people get stuck, I will slowly start posting hints in this topic.

I will give specific hints to people who ask, but you have to earn those hints, here's how:
- Every GOLD Premium starts out with a free hint
- Some riddles branch off into BONUS riddles. These don't help towards unlocking Election information, but I award you a hint upon completing them.
- xTorturer is awarded one free hint because he was the first person to submit his vote!

I will start counting your hints as soon as you use one.
I will always ask if you are sure you want to use your hint on something, so asking me a question doesn't automatically lose you a hint.
 
As always, the beginning of the riddle has been hidden somewhere in this thread.

Good luck!

I think I'm missing something because I dunno where the riddle actually is.

Congratulations on actually not being able to solve the first puzzle... 

UPDATE:
I'm afraid I've been busy all day and will not have a lot of time to finish the riddle, I expected people to take more time to finish riddle 7.
I might just add a little extra, but I can't promise to have it done before Saturday afternoon 17:00.

Everyone who manages to finish the riddle before Sunday 23:59 CET gets a bonus.
Bonus can either be a hint for the next election riddle OR 5000 pointshop points.

Please don't share the ending or any other solutions to keep it fair.
