ElectoralVote: Could we get a tie? August 7, 2012

Posted by sandyclaus in Politics.

In a close election, it is possible that the electoral college could be tied 269 to 269. Then we move to Plan B. (Actually, if it is 270 to 268 and there is a faithless or extremely stupid elector among the 270, we also move to Plan B because the Constitution says you need an absolute majority, not just more than the other guy.) So how might we get a tie?
