This Idaho Election Could be Decided by a Coin Flip

Apparently this is how you resolve a tie in politics.

Yes, we’re being 100% serious.

Barbara Lowe and Paul Sand are running for city council in Grangeville, Idaho. Both candidates received the exact same amount of votes. How does one go about deciding who wins? First, you do a “final vote canvassing,” then you flip a coin. This is a thing that is actually happening.

Both candidates are scheduled to meet with the city clerk, then possibly flip a coin to decide who wins the city council seat. Crazy, but it’s a one time thing.

Or is it?

In Heyburn, the same thing is happening betwixt two candidates vying for a city council seat. This writer is no mathematician, but how is that even possible? Let’s just hope those coins don’t land on their side, or all hell could break loose.
