Candidates to draw slips from hat to determine election

BARRY COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two candidates in Barry County tied in their election Tuesday and will have to draw slips of paper from a hat to decide who wins.

The race is for the 3rd Ward Precinct in Barry County. Allen Klein and Carol Ost tied with 54 votes each.

They will meet at 8:00am Thursday at the clerk's office for the drawing. One slip will read "elected" and the other "not elected."

The clerk can't recall the last time this happened.
