For the "Now I've heard everything" file: In Dewey Beach, Delaware, three candidates for town council don't even live in Delaware, as the Cape Gazette reports:

Running for the two available seats in the Saturday, Sept. 20 election are Kris Appel, who lives in Baltimore, Md.; Marc Appelbaum of Chevy Chase, Md.; and Martin Seitz of Silver Spring, Md.

According to the charter, the commission must include at least two resident commissioners, but that requirement is satisfied by Mayor Dell Tush and Commissioner Diane Hanson. Two nonresidents are eligible for election during this election.

Maybe this is common in vacation spots?
