[ARCHIVED] Lot Draw for Tie

Lot Draw

The Town of Fairfield Position No. 3 ended in a tie for the November 5th General Election.  A mandatory hand recount was conducted.  The results remained unchanged and the recount was certified by the Spokane County Canvassing Board.  To break the 78-78 tie, a lot draw took place on Monday, December 9th at 3:00 PM at the Spokane County Elections Office – 1033 West Gardner Avenue.  The winner, by lot, is Steven Walk.

A numbered ball will be assigned to each candidate and placed in a plastic milk bottle. The bottle will be shaken and a ball is drawn to determine the winner between Steven Walk and Dave Watling.  This method was also used to break the last tie in Spokane County – the 2013 Town of Latah Position No. 1 contest.
