Colored pens, coin tosses settle tied elections

In this Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, photo, Richie Burke and Martha Wickre, who tied in a race for the town commission in Manteo, N.C., are shown here after a coin toss decided the winner. Wickre called heads, and the coin landed on tails so Burke was declared the winner. (Gregory Clark/The Coastland Times via AP)
