This is Duke, the (honorary) mayor of Cormorant, Minn.

Last Thursday, Duke won an election to be the honorary mayor for the town of 12, resident Tammy Odegarrd told BuzzFeed.

"Pretty much everyone knows him," she said.

The election for honorary mayor, which cost $1 to vote in, lasted five weeks and helped raise money for a local event.

Luckily for Duke, he'll be rewarded with a handsome salary of a year's supply of kibble, donated by a local pet store.

"He is an outside dog, loved by everyone in the town, and he is a regular at Cormorant Pub," Odegarrd said of the furry 7-year-old politician.

Residents could vote for anyone they wanted, and started to put the dog's name on the ballot.

America, meet the new mayor of Cormorant, Minn.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
