I've often banged the drum on this blog that voting in Sullivan County can make a difference. A lot of races here are close, and sometimes come down to a handful of votes. But a single vote? Yup. In the council election for the Town of Delaware there's a tie — between the Democrat candidate John Murphy and the Republican candidate John Gain — for the second open slot. John Gain was ahead in the election day count, but John Murphy closed the gap to a tie when the absentee ballots were counted yesterday. Not sure how a tie gets resolved.
