A four-year-old boy was re-elected mayor of the community of Dorset in the northern US state of Minnesota.

Residents of the community of 25 people chose Robert "Bobby" Tufts as their mayor in a random draw on Sunday at an annual local festival, a worker at a general store there said.

The post is symbolic because Dorset was incorporated into a neighbouring municipality and has no official local government.

The community holds a draw to elect a mayor, with residents paying a dollar for each of their votes. A dog and a rooster have also been in the running for mayor.
