They "forgot"... twice

I used to hear stories like this when my children were teens.

Utah town forgets to hold election

A Utah town set the gold standard for election mismanagement this month when it simply forgot to hold an election.

The town of Wallsburg, Utah, was meant to elect a new mayor and city council on November 5. But, the Salt Lake Tribune reported, the person in charge of running the election forgot to make the necessary preparations, like letting people know that the filing period for candidates had opened, and printing ballots.

By the time the mistake was realized, it was too close to the day that was supposed to be election day to remedy the situation. [...]

This is the second cycle in a row that the town has forgotten to hold an election.
