While the quest itself is a short one, triggering the quest is difficult as it requires you to first complete the following quests:

  • Team Cece or Team Reede?
  • A Letter for Koyin
  • A New Signature Food
  • Reede's Secret
  • Cece's Secret

You must complete these quests in the given order as they are all related. Once you are done, you can talk to Cece's sister Sophie at Ventest Clothing to trigger The Mayoral Election quest.

Once Cece comes outside, follow her to Silo on the opposite side. Make sure to maintain distance, or she will catch you.

Go back and tell what you found Sophie inside Ventest Clothing. Once that is done, she will ask you to climb up the Silo and see what Cece is up to. Climb the Silo and enter it using the small window shown in the screenshot below.
