Earlier this month we voted, cast or ballots, for several local races. On such race was for a seat on one of the several local school boards. Apparently the ballots have been counted and it's a TIE between the incumbent and the challenger. So to break the tie the county clerk has decided to have a coin toss. Winner of the coin toss wins the election and gets to take his place on the school board.
Do you think this is the appropriate way to handle a tie or do you think it should be done differently?

The coin toss sounds good to me, another election would take to long and would be costly just for a school board member.
The loser will just have to learn to dig up a few more bodies to vote next time.
