MANILA, Philippines (AP) - What do you do when two candidates running for mayor in the Philippines get exactly the same number of votes? You get them to toss a coin.
Marvic Feraren and Boyet Py both received 3,236 votes for mayor of San Teodoro town in Mindoro Oriental province in Monday's elections.
The Elections Commissions suggested the two men flip a coin five times each, which is allowed under the country's Election Code to break a tie.
Feraren won Tuesday, but not before a second round of coin flipping.
They tied in the first round too.
