1 Be the Mayor of the Day (or hour)

Not only can you “Go to Hell” but you can actually be the Major for the day or an hour! Start the process by electing yourself, someone, or thing else (like your neighbor, dog, cat, or sock) by requesting your preferred day. Upon your election, full-day term Mayors receive a horn, T-shirt, mug, badge, wallet card, proclamation certificate, and dirt from Hell!
