Elasticsearch manual election

My cluster has 5 master eligible nodes.

Is there a way to manually elect different master node from rest of master eligible nodes in cluster, by stopping master node, elasticsearch will automatically elects master node, but there is that blimp where rest of nodes thought it's one node, but now they know that node is down and now there is another master node now. I'm trying to see if there is a way to do it more gracefully.

There's no way to manually request a re-election, it's all automatic based on the availability of the current elected master.

Okay, that's what I thought, but I thought I'd double check)
