MADISON COUNTY, Miss.- A coin toss could decide the fate of a Madison County supervisor race.
It’s between incumbent Supervisor Karl Banks and the Republican challenger David Bishop. The Clarion-Ledger reports Banks has held the lead by only one vote. One of the ballots is still not counted because the voter didn’t have ID when she voted. She is supposed to show up at the Election Commision Friday to prove her identity.
If it ends up that the race is a tie, it is Mississippi state law to either toss a coin, or draw a straw to determine the next supervisor.
