CLAYTON, Idaho (AP) - The state’s second smallest city is looking to elect more than half of its official population to office this election season.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Hf2a25 ) that according to a 2010 census and a sign on the edge of town, the central Idaho city of Clayton has a population of seven. The city is hoping to elect four residents — a mayor and three City Council members.

The town in the center of Custer County was founded in 1881 as a mining community. A couple hundred people called Clayton home at one point, but the population has dwindled.

Now, there are only about a dozen registered voters set to hit the polls Tuesday.

The city has had two mayors resign in the past two years. Wendi McKnight is serving as interim mayor.
