I have a deck with the same politics and voting theme and I found these to be pretty on theme

Beseech the Queen

Royal Assassin or King's Assassin


Ballot Broker

Grudge Keeper

Knights of the Black Rose

Ankle Shanker and Odric, Lunarch Marshal synergize well with all the key words the deck naturally comes with

Might just be me, but Serra Ascendant I find makes you a target and isn't a fun card to play against.

I don't like Sunforger with only 8 targets. I would up the counter of cards it can fetch, Vindicate can become Utter End for example (is hitting lands an issue?).

And I don't think Aid is that great, with how many targets it has/the theme of the deck. I would argue, swords aren't so hot in EDH and don't need to be in every deck, and you've got a cool theme here that you could tune and work on without them, which would free up like 5-6 slots.

If you want to do the draining thing, Firemane Angel is a fun, flavourful card that gains a bit of life. Searing Meditation grinds it into damage which hopefully you can turn into more life. Cliffhaven Vampire is always fun, but I think you need more incidental life gain. Treasury Thrull seems an odd card to be lacking given all your other, much weaker extort. Pontiff of Blight is also a sure in.

Knights of the Black Rose is a bad card, but it does open up a lot more interesting political play. If your meta is durdly play it to encourage attacks a lot more.

I also feel you are a bit light on draw. Either I would include draw engines, such as Well of Lost Dreams and Necropotence, or just more draw spells like Ancient Craving.

The only vote card you're missing is Messenger Jays; just wanted to point that out.

Given the fact that each of your commanders are focused on political card draw, it would be pretty awesome if this deck also had a subtheme of being the monarch. I would add Canal Courier and Keeper of Keys, which both have synergy with Tymna, Custodi Lich and Palace Jailer for extra removal, Garrulous Sycophant to trigger Ludevic, Knights of the Black Rose, Protector of the Crown as an additional pillow fort effect, Queen Marchesa, Skyline Despot, Throne of the High City, and Throne Warden.

Hey, I have no idea what sort of deck you're going for, it doesn't have a great deal of focus. But, you say you want a fun deck, so here are some cards to have a look at, hopefully some interest you.

Jace's Archivist is good fun on the field, huge refresh power and a mill engine as well, pop Jace's Erasure on the field as well and you're good to go!

Recruiter of the Guard lets you search for a guy, which we love. Sacred Mesa lets you make loads of Pegasuses? Pegasi? Well, you'll have a lot of those winged horsed that's for sure! You'll kill a lot as well though, but they are sort of asking for it. Works weirdly well with Skirsdag High Priest, classic combo...

Victimize is crazy awesome. Liliana's Reaver is a cheap and powerhouse four drop, a mini Grave Titan!

Palace Jailer lets you become the monarch! Woop woop! Custodi Lich does as well, and so do the Knights of the Black Rose! We love being the monarch. And so does the Throne Warden.

Finally Mystic Confluence is a decent and versatile Esper card.

Just some cheap and fun cards to have a think about.
