For Election Day episode, 'Scorpion' aims not to choose sides

The episode, airing Monday night, will see the team band together when an unknown force tries to rig the presidential election.

To accomplish this story, the executive producers told CNN they aimed to keep all aspects of the episode -- including its candidates -- rooted in fiction because it was "important to us that we not choose any side in the presidential race," executive producer Nick Santora told CNN via email.
