From Elmo to dogs at polling stations - general elections might not be as dull as you think.
Politicians are now preparing for the next UK election on December 12, so here are some facts that might make it a bit more interesting!
Ok it wasn't the real Elmo, but a man called Bobby 'Elmo' Smith.
He tried to become the Member of Parliament (MP) for Maidenhead back in 2017 but lost out to former Prime Minister Theresa May.
He only managed to get three votes.
And he wasn't the only person hoping to represent the area, Lord Buckethead was another candidate there that year.
Similarly, the former Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron had an unusual opponent in his Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency - Mr Fishfinger.
Almost anyone can put themselves forward to become an MP.
They need to meet a certain criteria though including being over 18 years old. They also need at least 10 people, from the place where they'll be standing, to put their name forward.
They need to pay a £500 deposit too!
Millions of adults in the UK have registered to vote...so they need somewhere to go and do it.
It's a lot of people so different places, including schools and village halls, are used as polling stations.
But there have also been some other more unusual places, such as a caravan, garage, laundrette, pub and boxing ring!
You might have seen some of the really cute pictures people post of their dogs when they've gone to vote.
It's because pooches are allowed at polling stations, as long as the building usually permits them. Sometimes there's even a staff member to look after them!
However, if someone wants to bring a horse or pony along, they have to be chained up outside.
Pencils are usually given out at polling stations for voters. It's because if pen ink is used, it could smudge or leak into another box.
People can still bring their own pen though.
Sometimes choosing who to vote for in an election can be a really difficult decision to make.
If a voter thinks they've picked the wrong person or they've had a change of heart, they can try again, but only if they haven't put their paper in the ballot box.
They can explain to the polling station staff what's happened and they'll then cancel their paper and give them a new one.
