Frankenstein, Hitler on Indian Ballot

If you thought this election season was a circus, check out the tiny Indian state of Meghalaya. Among the list of 345 people running for state assembly are Frankenstein and Adolf Hitler. Really. The small state in northeast India is well known for its obsession with strange names, a fascination that is perfectly illustrated on its ballot. Obscurely named Frankenstein Momin likely has a better chance than Adolf Hitler, who was—literally—named after the dictator. Shout-outs to American presidents are another popular trend, with candidates like Kennedy Cornelius Khyriem and Jhim Carter Sangma. Some are so wacky, we can’t help but pull for them. Go get ’em, Billykid Sangma and Field Marshal Mawphniang. You got this.
