Today’s election has had one surprising effect that left Iowa’s inhabitants lost and bewildered.
“We don’t have a government”, says Julian Fresq, who’s been living in Iowa for 52 years. “No Senate, no House of Representatives, no Governor, no Treasurer, no nothing! It lasts since 1992 and nobody realised until today. I wanted to contact the Governor after hearing about all those election talks on TV and realised we don’t have one”.
After spending the day calling everyone he knew, Julian figured out what had happened.
“We were supposed to have an election in June 1992 but during the Big State Fair, the Cornfield Maze got a bit crazy. It took us a week to find all the people lost in it. Nobody died but we completely forgot about the election”.
As incredible as it sounds, the whole State has been functioning perfectly ever since.
“Obviously, we will have an election really soon to fix the problem. I mean, I am sure we need a State Government. It is the right thing to do”, Julian says.
Some people, on the other hand, are happy to leave things the way they are.
“I don’t really know why we would need a State Government for. Although, now I think about it, I miss the TV commercials during the elections”, Adam Kosdark, another Iowa’s inhabitant, says.
