Lakewood Fire commissioner election may be decided by a Coin Toss
The election results for one of the seats for Lakewood Fire commissioner ended in a Tie. The voice of Lakewood reports there are several options for candidates to do. They can ask for a hand recount on mail in ballots and see if all signatures match the ones on record. Fire Elections are only held once a year, so the option of another election is out. However the fire commissioner board must have 5 members present and currently there are four. Board of elections member Rabbi Shenkelowski tells TVOL, NJ law allows the flip of a coin to decide a tied election.
