When the election begins, simply watch the event unfold and eventually you will need to speak to Cece again. When you’ve spoken to her, go and find her standing by her hat in her shop.

Speak to Cece one final time to gain the ever so stylish ‘Cece’s Hat’ for everything you’ve done for Hateno.

You will then be able to see all the other pieces of armor she has in stock. When we visited her, she had the following:
