2004, November 2
Another unusual election was held in this unincorporated community of Rabbit Hash. This unconventional election was different in that each vote cast cost the voter $1 and you could vote as many times as you paid your dollar! The money cast with the vote was to help preserve this small community. When the polls closed at 6 pm, the Boone County officials called for the results. It took almost forty-five minutes to get them and find out who would be the new mayor in Rabbit Hash. Now, not only was this a paid election, but the candidates were also unique. First was Higgins, the donkey. He was thought to have a nice lead throughout, but wound up with only 712 votes. Lulu, the pig, conceded and dropped out early. Rudy, the Brittany Spaniel, was second, garnering 2,052 votes. But in the end it was Junior, a black Labrador, who had won with 5,049 votes. He appeared for the crowd after the results were announced and even became a guest the next day on Good Morning Cincinnati. $8,300 was raised from the election to be used by the historical society to help with the preservation of the community.
