The farcical elections of North Korea; the electoral candidate who was the only one on the ballot, won a quarter of a million votes, and still lost; the electoral error caused by cosmic rays; and the ridiculously circuitous election of the Doge of Venice.
Hey, just because North Korea is a totalitarian state it doesn’t mean they don’t have elections.
In 2018 Munafri Arifuddin was the only name on the ballot for mayor of Makassar. He won a quarter of a million votes – but still lost the election.
Cosmic rays may have nearly changed the outcome of a Belgian election in 2003.
To become Doge of Venice you needed to get through at least eleven elections.
