It has been a long time since I have tried a diplomatic victory, and definitely my first try in G&K. So I am playing on a large map with 14 civs and 28 CS, I think 24 CS are left alive. It says I need 14 votes to win. So I build the UN (France only has one Spaceship part left so timelines are tight), and combine the votes I get from France Russia and my 6 Cs, with the 10 new votes from CS I bribe away from Greece. So I have 18 votes. So now I build the UN, get the 18 votes that turn in an election, yet don't win and now there are 7 turns until the next election. Do I need to win the next one too? Is something screwy because I added Civs to the map? I don't remember last time I did this (probably over a year ago) having to wait and the Civilopedia is not any help as it says you win "when you get the votes".
