A 50-50 Chance of Election

I had this article translated for me, but essentially it was the case in the recent municipal elections in Spain that a small town with a population of 132 people had a tie in the voting for mayor. 66 people voted for one and 66 people voted for the other. How do you resolve this? Well, according to Spanish electoral law there is a very unused article wherein you get out a coin (in this case a 20 Euro cent) and you flip it. The winner of the coin toss won the election.
The only sadly ironic aspect to this is that I feel it somewhat mimics the US on a micro-scale in regards to our current state of politics with what has become a two party system.
