Race Ends in Tie as Candidate's Wife Doesn't Vote

Bobby McDonald "learned the hard way that every vote counts," the Kentucky Enquirer reports.

McDonald "finished in a dead heat Tuesday with Olivia Ballou for the sixth and final seat on the Walton City Council. Each candidate captured 669 votes, but one ballot McDonald is sure would have gone his way was never cast. His wife, Katie, who works nights... didn't make it to the polls yesterday.

Said McDonald: "If she had just been able to get in to vote, we wouldn't be going through any of this. You never think it will come down to one vote, but I'm here to tell you that it does."
