Get Out the Vote! All Twelve of Them
Don’t ask me why I was reading about 19th-century British politician Robert Peel, but do check this out:
The young Peel entered politics at the young age of 21 as M.P. for the Irish rotten borough of Cashel City, Tipperary. With a scant twenty-four voters on the rolls, he was elected unopposed.
Twenty-four voters! I love it.
