What would happen if the actual votes resulted in a tie?


Like 1 million and 1 Obama vs. 1 million and 1 McCain?

Gotta love Missouri, right.

Seriously though, Missouri is almost always like this...basically a turnout game between St. Louis/Kansas City and the rest.

I think St. Louis will win this year...Smiley

I guess there must be a provision in each state's constitution for this - perhaps the Governor gets a deciding vote, or the state's legislature, or they split the electors?

In some states, they cast lots.

It usually isn't in the Constitution but in statute.  NV uses draw poker along with other random methods.

I know for downballot offices, some states have methods as rudimentary as drawing lots, as JJ alluded to.  if this happened on a presidential level, who knows.

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.
