Sometimes, an official dies.
Sometimes, the deceased win elections.
Sometimes, an official resigns.
Sometimes, 29 public officials are arrested in one day.
Sometimes, a person is appointed to fill a vacancy.
Sometimes, a person is appointed to an office, but a question of the constitutionality of the appointment and a restraining order prevent him from taking office until the highest court of the state rules otherwise.
We track them all.
