Goofy things to vote on

Having voted in California and Nevada, I have come to realize there are some very strange things to vote on....

Here in Nevada, at least in this area, we have to elect members for something called the Mosquito Abatement District.
Just what in the hell that is I have no clue, and I have lived here 11 + years.

When I lived in Riverside County California we actually had to vote for a coroner. This leads me to a bizarre story.

I believe it was the election year of 1992. Oddly enough there was a heated race for the Riverside County coroner.
Not long before election day- the challenger died and the one who did the autopsy was, of course, the incumbent.

Can you imagine a political debate for a coroner's race ?
