Anyone? Bueller?

Tamarac, Florida discussed the possibility of annexing a nearby, unincorporated community in Broward County - they just wanted to see what the residents had to say about the notion. So they drew-up a referendum on the matter and held an election.

And absolutely no one showed up!

Had one constituent shown up, his would have been the deciding vote! There are reportedly 68 registered voters in the unincorporated Prospect Bend neighborhood of about 200 citizens. It cost the city $2500 to keep the polling booths open for 12 hours.
