Normally when I think of drawing lots... I think of having to pick the poor guy who has to stay behind to detonate the bomb and die while the rest of the group escapes... or something similar during a movie plot.

During the actual election, there was an actual dead tie. 2,783 to 2,783. There will be a recount, but if its still a tie, then the guy who picked Mayor 1 wins. Why not just flip a coin?
