The Pro-Town players' primary weapon in defeating Scum. In most Mafia games, a lynch is achieved by a majority of players voting for one person. They are then "killed" and (usually) some information is revealed about their faction and/or role.

This mechanism is one of the defining features of the game, and thus Scum will seek to use it to get an innocent, but suspicious-seeming, pro-town player lynched when they can. Examining voting records of lynches from prior days can be extremely enlightening in the endgame.

Occasionally this action goes by other names, but it is considered essential to the game that the uninformed majority have a way to eliminate the informed minority (or minorities).
