[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Suffern 1-11-1982 by L.L. No. 1-1982. Amendments noted where applicable.]
In the event that more eligible candidates than the number to be elected to the same Village office receive an equal number of votes, which number of votes would be sufficient to elect a candidate to the Village office in question had candidates not received an equal number of votes, a runoff election shall be held to determine which of such persons shall be elected.
Such runoff may be waived and the selection of the persons elected shall be made by lot if each person who shall have received an equal number of votes shall file with the Village Clerk within two days after the final certification of such tie result a written and signed notice of consent that such selection be made by lot.
Unless waived, such runoff election shall be held on the first Tuesday at least 10 days after the final certification of such tie result, subject to the adoption of a resolution by the Board of Trustees pursuant to § 15-104, Subdivision 3b, of the Election Law. The only persons who shall be deemed nominated for the purposes of § 15-104, Subdivision 3b, shall be those persons who shall have received an equal number of votes.
