Missouri City, MO (AP) -- They say every vote counts, but not when there aren't any.
A candidate running unopposed for city council in Missouri City, Missouri, wasn't re-elected because he didn't get any votes all. Not even one from himself.
Joe Selle says he simply forgot that Tuesday was election day, and apparently so did the other 34 registered voters in ward three.
The result was zero votes cast in Selle's race, but officials say the city charter lets him keep the seat unless someone else is "successfully elected and qualified."
