The saddest election

A fill-in member of a Missouri city council was running for a full-time position this week. Election Day came and went, and he received…no votes.

Not one.

And he wasn’t even running against anyone else .

The guy didn’t even vote for himself.

This has to be the most emo election I’ve ever heard of! The man’s got the position despite the complete lack of votes, at least until someone is…you know…actually elected. The reason? He, and apparently everyone else, forgot it was election day.
Forgetting his own election day, huh? Now that’s a city council member you know you can trust!

    That has to be hands down one of the funniest things I ever heard. How do you forget to vote for yourself, heck how do you actually forget when the election is?

    Wow, … I’m a political science major and I find that absolutely intriguing :). I’m going to have to print and save a copy of that news article :).
