LITTLE VALLEY TRUSTEE TIE-VOTE SHOCK:
KEENAN 49, PASCHEN-POOLE 49
ALL ABSENTEE BALLOTS COUNTED
WILL GO TO COIN TOSS... WHAT I KNOW SO FAR. The Paschen-Poole campaign is despondent right now... they were expecting this to be a slam-dunk. Both sides are expecting a coin toss to resolve this.

That's not necessarily true; as I understand it, a coin toss is held in the event of a tie. Further causing problems is that the seat technically already is vacant and that Paschen-Poole is filling the seat on an interim basis already. I'm going to see what else I can find out about this as soon as I can... developing...

Yeah, that's the ticket. More on this story this afternoon after I get back from work.
