A man drew a penis on a ballot and it counted as a vote.

In Wales, drawing a penis on your ballot counts as a vote.

Why make an X when you can draw an entire detailed penis? (via Thinkstock)

Instead of an "X," one voter drew penis on a Parliamentary ballot that ended up counting as a vote for Welsh MP Glyn Davies. In an interview with the South Wales Evening Post, Davies said "Amazingly, because it was neatly drawn within the confines of the box the returning officer deemed it a valid vote...Not sure the artist meant it to count, but I am grateful. If I knew who it was, I would like to thank him (or her) personally."

Sadly, we'll never know for sure whether the drawing was to protest the incumbent or simply to show off his/her (probably his) erotic art abilities. Davies would have won the election with or without the penis vote.

The voter may have been inspired by any number of popular penis artists, including wanksy and these ladies.
