election_settled_by_card_game.jpgIn a replay of similar events that have occurred throughout history, the fight over the Estancia town trustee position between Josie Richards and Michelle Dunlap was settled by card game. Josie Richards won with a pair of nines.

The last New Mexico election to be won via a game of chance was the 2006 race for Edgewood’s mayor.

In fact, it is a law that tied election results are settled using a game of chance. I wonder if the law specifies which game.
