There's always Goodridge, Minnesota

Just when I was fed up with how local races were ran in South Carolina, along comes the Town of Goodridge, Minnesota, population 98. According WCCO TV in Minnesota, no one filed to run for Mayor of Goodridge. Bob Homme and Dave Brown each got 22 write-in votes. Brown became Mayor for the next two years by winning a coin toss.

It is not known if either candidate had lawyers to supervise the coin toss, test the weight of the coins involved, or if they paid consultants to tell the best way in which to toss the coin for a favorable result.

It appears Homme will not ask for a re-toss.
