Tie Vote

Some one asked a question about what might happen if the recount on Monday ends up with a tie vote?
The answer is found in RSA 669:36; heads or tails.
 " 669:36 Tie Vote. – In case of a tie vote at any town election, except as provided for unofficial ballots in RSA 669:60, the winner shall be determined by lot by the town clerk in the presence of the candidates who are tied if, upon notice from him, they elect to be present."
