I'm seeing a lot of budget and Standard choices, so I would suggest Temple of Silence in place of the Guildgate. After that, Knights are a common tribe, so keeping in mind cheapness - Arvad the Cursed , Benalish Honor Guard , Benalish Knight , Benalish Marshal , Blood-Cursed Knight , Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Dauntless Bodyguard , Knights of the Black Rose (maybe) and Valiant Knight .

A few cards to consider adding:
Adriana, Captain of the Guard : She’s a knight who adds value in a multiplayer game.
Knights of the Black Rose : These’ll produce some card advantage.
Wear / Tear is a pretty good two-for-one in Boros.

It might be in flavor if you focused on effects gaining you life and losing opponents.
Things that work well for that are) Agent of Masks, Bloodchief Ascension, Campaign of Vengeance, Cliffhaven Vampire, Drana's Emissary, maybe Essence Depleter (depending on your mana rock situation), Exquisite Blood/Sanguine Bond, Exsanguinate, Falkenrath Noble, Infectious Curse, DEFINITELY Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Kaya, Ghost Assassin, Knights of the Black Rose, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Palace Siege, Polluted Bonds, Retreat to Hagra, Scholar of Athreos, Souls of the Faultless, Subversion, Suture Priest, Trespasser's Curse, Twilight Prophet, and Zulaport Cutthroat.
So yeah. Plenty of suggestions there to consider.

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

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