    MailOnline explains Idyllwild is a non-incorporated town so it has no human mayor - so the Animal Rescue Friends (RAF) decided to sponsor an election instead. The town's first animal election was held in 2012, with 14 cats and 2 dogs in the running for mayor. Max I, who has since passed away, won by a landslide. The new mayor Max II has also been joined by Deputy Mayor Mikey, and Deputy Mayor Mitzi, who are all related.
