As you all know, today is election day!

Your task today is to print out a ballot, given an input.

If the input is Hillary Clinton, print:

Hillary Clinton   ===-----===>
Donald Trump      ===     ===>
____________      ===     ===>

However, if the input is Donald Trump, print:

Hillary Clinton   ===     ===>
Donald Trump      ===-----===>
____________      ===     ===>

If it is something else, write it on the third line:

Hillary Clinton   ===     ===>
Donald Trump      ===     ===>
Oliver Ni         ===-----===>

(Technically, I'm not 18 yet...)

Remember, this is , so the code with the fewest bytes wins.

    \$\begingroup\$ Any max length on the name of "something else"? (There are 18 characters before the first equal sign in your examples) \$\endgroup\$ – Link Ng Nov 9 '16 at 6:49

    \$\begingroup\$ Is it case sensitive or insensitive? Judging by the test cases I'm assuming sensitive at the moment. \$\endgroup\$ – Kevin Cruijssen Nov 9 '16 at 9:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ @KritixiLithos but that would be rigging the system! \$\endgroup\$ – OldBunny2800 Nov 9 '16 at 21:18

Explanation

³ẇị⁾- x5⁾ =,”=x3¤j;”>ṭ   Helper link. Argument: row
³ẇ                       Check if the user's vote is in this row
  ị⁾-                    Take "-" if it was, " " otherwise
      x5                 Take five of that character
        ⁾ =,”=           Take the array [" =", "="]
              x3         Turn it into ["   ===", "==="]
                ¤        Combine the two previous steps into a nilad
                 j       Join the list by the five character string
                  ;”>    Add ">"
                     ṭ   Prepend the original row

ṭ“Gụ©l⁴“%eŻƤ(»”_x12¤ṭQḣ3z⁶ZÇ€Y   Main link. Argument: vote
 “Gụ©l⁴“%eŻƤ(»                   Take the array ["Hillary Clinton", "Donald Trump"]
ṭ                                Add the user's vote to the list
              ”_                 Take "_"

Ungolfed & test code:

Try it here.

    String h = "Hillary Clinton",
           d = "Donald Trump",
           r = h+"   ===Q===>\n"+d+"      ===X===>\nZ===J===>";
    boolean H = h.equals(s),
            D = d.equals(s);
    for(int i = s.length(); i++ < 18; s += " ");
    return r.replace(H?"Q":D?"X":"J", "-----")
            .replace(H|D?"Z":"~", "____________      ")
            .replaceAll(H?"X|J":D?"Q|J":"Q|X", "     ")
            .replace(H|D?"~":"Z", s);
  }

  public static void main(String[] a){
    System.out.println(c("Hillary Clinton"));
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println(c("Donald Trump"));
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println(c("Anyone else?.."));
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println(c("S"));
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println(c("Anyone who is willing to take the job"));
  }
}

Output:

This answer is way too hacky, and way too long. I guess that's what you get when you design a golfing-language off of a text-editor. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Golfed:

Ungolfed:

  var d = "Donald Trump".PadRight(17);
  var r = "===     ===>\n";
  var c = r.Replace(" ", "-");
  var b = "____________".PadRight(17);
  return s == h.Trim() ? s.PadRight(17) + c + d + r + b + r :
    s == d.Trim() ? h + r + d + c + b + r :
      h + r + d + r + s.PadRight(17) + c;

Tried to create a Func for all those PadRights...Exactly the same byte count...

Console.WriteLine(printABallot.B("Hilary Clinton"));

Hilary Clinton   ===-----===>
