RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Tuesday is Primary Election Day in Nevada, and there are many choices in the Reno Mayoral Race.

This makes the odds of a tie higher than normal, but only two people will make it on the ballot for the general election. So, how would they break a tie?

In the event that two or more candidates receive the same number of votes, Nevada law puts the race in the hands of lady luck. The candidates would be summoned to the County Administration Building, where they would draw cards to decide. The highest card wins, and would advance to the general election in November.
