Hmm. A few minutes of research revealed that many elections, in the event of a tie vote, are determined by drawing lots. (That includes, apparently, seats in the Polish Sejm and for legislative seats in twenty-seven of the fifty US States. It happened in the US State of Virginia recently.) I suppose drawing lots for legislative seats would be significantly less expensive than the whole democracy/voting game.

Often I think, however, the game is more important than the outcome.

However, when the game takes longer than two beers, it loses some of the luster and needs to end. YMMV.

A local election near me came down to a coin toss last month http://www.swlondoner.co.uk/flipping-heck-conservatives-secure-sutton-ward-thanks-to-coin-toss/
