"O'Donovan's a communist!"
Toni Cipriani trying to get votes for Donald Love

Steering the Vote is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Donald Love from the Love Media Building in the Bedford Point district of Staunton Island, Liberty City.


Toni drops by Love's in-construction building in Bedford Point, with Love informing Toni that the vote between him and Miles O'Donovan is going down to the wire. Love tells Toni to go out and campaign for him, using a Campaign Van outside. Toni enters the campaign van, and drives to various marginal vote areas, campaigning for Love. Toni goes against two vans driving campaigning for O'Donovan, and eventually gains five marginal areas. Toni then destroys the two O'Donovan campaign vans to complete the mission.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get in the van
  • Drive through the marginal voting area checkpoints to win their vote
  • O'Donovan has put his vans out to win back the votes
  • Get at least 5 of the voting areas
  • Now you have enough areas, take out the opposition vans to stop O'Donovan getting any more



The reward for completing the mission is $1,500 ($1,700 if the player grabs all vote areas) and unlocks the mission Cam-Pain for Donald Love.
