    MANILA, Philippines — What do you do when two candidates for mayor get exactly the same number of votes? You get them to toss a coin. Marvic Feraren and Boyet Py both received 3,236 votes for mayor of San Teodoro town in the Mindoro Oriental province of the Philippines in Monday’s elections. The Elections Commissions suggested the two men flip a coin five times each, which is allowed under the country’s Election Code to break a tie. Feraren won Tuesday, but not before a second round of coin flipping. They tied in the first round too.
