Milk bottle tie-breaker: Ivan Willmschen advances to general election for Rockford town council
SPOKANE CO., Wash. — Ivan Willmschen will advance to the general election for Rockford town council after winning the milk-bottle tie-breaker.
Willmschen and his competitor Rachelle Arriaga both received 34 votes during the primary election.
Ties are broken using balls and a milk bottle in Spokane County. In the event of a tie, two numbered balls are put into a brown milk bottle, each representing a candidate, and whoever’s ball comes out first decides the winner.
Spokane County Auditor, Vicky Dalton conducted the tie-breaker Thursday. Willmschen was declared the winner.
He will race against candidate Mark Lonam Jr. in November.
