A 51-51 tie in the Byron-Bethany Irrigation District Division 1 Director race was decided Friday by the roll of a 20-sided dice by Larry Enos and Milan “Pete” Petrovich.
This was the first tie-breaker for the District and the Contra Costa County Elections streamed the dice rolls live on social media. According to the county, the District had the option of going to a run-off election or simply by “rolling the dice”. They opted not to hold a runoff.
Enos and Petrovich each had three rolls which Enos earned 51 points and earned reelection to Petrovich 45 points.
According to County Elections, there are roughly 150 voters in the Byron-Bethany Irrigation District and 102 voted.
