BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A hyperlocal GOP race in southwestern Idaho will be decided with a flip of a coin.

Ada County Chief Deputy Clerk Phil McGrane says that votes were evenly split for precinct committeemen candidates Mark Johnson and Peggy Moyer in Tuesday’s Republican primary election. According to Idaho law, this means a coin flip will be used to break the tie within about a week of the election.

The coin toss will take place in front of the Ada County Clerk’s office Monday afternoon in Boise.

The last time a tie race was decided by coin toss in Ada County was in 2012.
