TWIN FALLS -- The next mayor of a small southern Idaho town will be decided with a flip of a coin.

Albion city clerk Mary Yeaman said that votes were evenly split for Don Bowden and John Davis in Tuesday's election, so she will be flipping a coin to break the tie.

The date for the coin toss hasn't been set, though state election law says it should be done during a meeting held within about a week of the election. Yeaman, who has been clerk for 12 years, says she's never had to break a tie before.
