The U.S. is a little more than a year away from Election Day 2016, but Election Day 2015 has some interesting story lines too.

In Washington state, Microsoft's co-founder is funding a ballot initiative to save, among other animals, the pangolins. In San Francisco, there is a local measure against AirBnB.

And in Michigan, ousted lawmakers who are accused of misusing funds and making up a sex scandal to cover up for an affair they were having, are asking for their jobs back.
