Sorry about the 24-hour delay in getting the results for this election posted. A family issue popped up yesterday. I hate it when Life intrudes and gets in my way. But at the same time, I sort of glad it did, because this election ended in a tie between Bond and McCormick, and it gave me a little extra time to make sure I made the “right” decision. I worry about you guys thinking that I somehow might be manipulating the vote for my own purposes.

I hate ties, and I hate tie-breakers almost as much. But here are the three things I looked at to break the tie from the nine ballots:
1) number of first place votes (they tied with two a piece)
2) number of second place votes (McCormick had 2, Bond received 1)
3) head-to-head competition (looking at the 9 ballots individually, 6 of us ranked McCormick above Bond, 3 had it the other way around)
Two of the tie-breakers went to McCormick and none went to Bond, so here are the 1893 election results:

65 McCormick
65 Bond
50 Mathews
50 Meyerle
47 Pike
44 Ferguson
42 Smith
39 Leggett
25 Corcoran
19 York
17 Clapp
17 White
15 Cummings
14 Fisler
13 Wood
7 Force
1 Fulmer, Pratt
