Coin Flip (Test 4 of 10)

In Hickory’s Ward 3, a total of 60 votes were cast in the primary. Incumbent Danny Seaver was the top vote-getter with 28 votes. Nathan Hefner and Daria Jackson tied for second with 16 votes each. On Monday, a coin flip left Hefner as the winner. He didn’t get a seat on City Council, merely the right to face Seaver in a citywide vote in November. There were about as many people in the room for the coin flip as voted in the election. Jackson called “heads.” The coin came up “tails.” And Hefner’s campaign marched on.
