Conway is given news that the low voter turnout on Election Day is working in his favor, yet he remains cautious. Frank calls the governor of Tennessee and tells him that the home of a suspected terrorist has been raided and a plot to bomb the state's polling stations has been uncovered, urging him to shut them down. A riot caused by a bomb-sniffing dog occurs at one Tennessee polling station and injures several people. Frank is able to convince the governor to halt voting and declare a state of emergency. A curfew is enacted, much to Conway's dismay. Amid terrorist threats, the governor of Ohio also chooses to close down polling stations while Frank sits back and pretends that he doesn't want that to happen. Frank then calls Conway to concede the election. But as more states hold their election results in the wake of terrorist threats, the election remains contested. Frank and Claire discuss remaining in power for decades to come.
