Oregon town board chair race decided by coin toss

Posted:

OREGON (WKOW) -- The town of Oregon's board chair race came down to a coin toss.

Incumbent Darryl Weber and challenger Chris Johnson tied Tuesday night, 256 to 256. But there was still one outstanding absentee ballot that needed to be counted.

When 27 News contacted the woman who cast the ballot, she said she did not vote in that race because she didn't know anything about the candidates.

On Monday morning, the Oregon Municipal Board of Canvassers processed the absentee ballot and determined the ballot did not decide the race. The board then decided to proceed with a coin toss. It chose heads for Johnson and tails for Weber. The toss came up tails, meaning Weber will retain his seat and serve another two-year term.
