This is one heck of a way to determine how political power will be apportioned.

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Judges award Republican 1 vote, causing a tie in House race that will decide balance of power,” The Virginia Pilot reported Wednesday in a breaking development on a political contest that now comes down to random chance. So based on the luck of the draw, Democrats and Republicans in the House of Delegates could be split 50-50, ending nearly 18 years of Republican dominance.

“The general election took place on November 7, 2017,” Ballotpedia explains. “Unofficial recount results on December 19 showed Shelly Simonds (D) winning the District 94 race by one vote. Yancey held a 10-vote lead heading into the recount.

“On December 20, a panel of judges found that a disqualified ballot should have counted for Yancey, resulting in a tied race,” the election analysis continued. “According to Virginia law, the winner of a tied race is determined by lot, which means a random chance event such as a coin flip or drawing straws.”

Actually, it will be a draw placing names in canisters.
