South Dakota Election Settled By Dice Roll

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a quick way to resolve the 2016 presidential election. Rather than a year and a half of campaigning, roll the dice, which is what they did in Platte, S.D. The mayor's race was a rematch - Mayor Rick Gustad against Steve Christensen, whom he beat in 2013. This time it was too close to call. So in accordance with state law, they rolled a pair of dice. The incumbent rolled four; the challenger rolled seven and Platte has a new mayor. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
