During an election count it occasionally happens that two or more candidates are tied and that the rules require the tie is broken by a fair random method. This might mean:

  • flipping a coin
  • drawing lots

Examples include:

  • If two candidates in an Alternative Vote election have the (joint) least number of votes lots might be drawn to decide which candidate to exclude.
