Winner Election Results In 2 Ties

Bookmark and Share

In two city council races in Winner, candidates have to wait a little longer to know who will be sworn in.

Both the Ward I and the Ward III races ended in a tie. After several recounts with each race, election officials determined that in Ward I, Incumbent Roger Root and Dave Baker each won 136 votes. In Ward III, Brad Schramm and Orville Lund each won 128 votes.

Deputy Finance Officer Rhonda Augspurger says the tie elections are not a first for election officials to tackle in Winner. Several years ago, another city council race also resulted in a tie.

Augspurger says an election board will review the results of Tuesday's election next week. If they determine a tie exists, members will decide on a game of chance to determine the winner. The last tie election was decided by a coin flip.

South Dakota state law requires that tie elections be decided by lot.
