Small Idaho Town's Mayor To Be Chosen By Coin Toss

Posted: Updated:

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - The next mayor of a small southern Idaho town will be decided with a flip of a coin.
    
Albion city clerk Mary Yeaman told The Times-News (http://bit.ly/192eKzr ) that votes were evenly split for Don Bowden and John Davis in Tuesday's election, so she will be flipping a coin to break the tie.
    
The date for the coin toss hasn't been set, though state election law says it should be done during a meeting held within about a week of the election. Yeaman, who has been clerk for 12 years, says she's never had to break a tie before.
