Nev. candidates to draw lots to break election tie

Two candidates in a rural Nevada county will settle a tie in their primary race Las Vegas style.

PAHRUMP, Nev. —

Two candidates in a rural Nevada county will settle a tie in their primary race Las Vegas style.

A Republican Nye County commissioner and his challenger tied with 381 votes apiece in the June 8 primary. They'll cut cards - or throw dice, draw straws or flip a coin - in the next week or so to determine who moves on to the general election.

The ballots in the race between County Commissioner Andrew "Butch" Borasky and Challenger Carl Moore Sr. were recounted by hand twice.

The seat Borasky and Moore are running for represents parts of Pahrump, about 60 miles west of Las Vegas. The lucky winner will face Libertarian candidate Sandra Darby.
