Sec. 3.18. Tie vote.
If, at any city primary or election, there shall be no choice between candidates by reason of two or more persons having received an equal number of votes, then the Council shall name a date for the appearance of such persons for the purpose of determining the nomination or election of such candidates by lot, as provided by State Law. Should any person or persons fail or refuse to appear, in person or by his representative, to determine the result of any tie election at the time and place named by the Council, such determination shall be made by lot, in his or their absence, at the direction and under the supervision of the Council. Such determination shall, in any event, be final.
