Welcome to the dark side… of politics.

Viktor Shevchenko, a former electrician - turned sith lord - turned political candidate, was not allowed to vote in Ukraine's parliamentary election on Sunday, due to the fact that he refused to remove his helmet.

Schevchenko, who legally changed his name to Darth Vader prior to the elections, said he "would die if he took his helmet off," according to ABC News.

He arrived at the polling station standing atop a large black van blasting the Imperial March.

Vader was running in the Ukraine's Internet Party, with promises to turn the Ukraine into a "galactic empire" and build a military space station "that will protect the whole territory of Ukraine."
