Bobby McDonald tied with Olivia Ballou with 669 votes for the Walton, KY city council. McDonald’s wife never got to the polls but would have made her husband a winner if she did.

“She feels bad enough,” McDonald said. “She worked extra hours, goes to school and we have three kids, so I don’t blame her. She woke up about ten minutes before the polls closed and asked if she should run up, but I told her I didn’t think one vote would matter.”

So the race will be decided by a coin toss.
