NORTH DAKOTA: ELECTION DAY IS A NO-SHOW

Usually the voter turnout in the town of Pillsbury is very good, but in last week’s municipal elections it crashed to an all-time low: zero per cent of voters filled out ballots. Even those on the ballot didn’t vote. The community has just 25 voters, and they said they were too busy on their farms or, in the case of the mayor’s wife, running the beauty salon and post office. Hubby Darrel Brudevold was acclaimed; he was running unopposed anyway.
