Whereas a dogfight drags on in the race for the White House, a barely much less consequential — and far better-natured — election has seen French Bulldog Wilbur change into mayor in a city in Kentucky.
Wilbur Beast, a six-month-old pup, received the mayoral vote within the small city of Rabbit Hash, which has had a canine mayor since 1998.
The election is held to lift cash for the Rabbit Hash Historic Society, with every vote costing $1. The most important fundraiser will get the prize.
It’s not solely canine who can participate, with a donkey, a cat, and even a rooster vying for prime workplace this yr. The runner up and third place went to Jack Rabbit, a Beagle, and Poppy, a Golden Retriever, respectively.
One main similarity between the Rabbit Hash election and this yr’s presidential election is the beautiful turnout.
Like Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who now holds the report for probably the most votes in historical past for a US presidential election, Wilbur broke the report variety of votes in his election with 13,143.
Total there have been 22,985 votes, the most important turnout within the historical past of Rabbit Hash elections, the Rabbit Hash Historic Society mentioned.
