Apparently that’s how they settle ties in Nevada. The Las Vegas Sun has the story.
An eight of hearts in a card draw has given Eureka County Clerk-Treasurer Jackie Berg another four years in office.
Berg, a member of the Independent American Party, and Carrie Wright, who formerly worked in the clerk-treasurer’s office, both polled 373 votes in the November election.
So the election was decided by a draw of the cards.
