[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Rye Brook 1-10-2006 by Local Law No. 1-2006. Amendments noted where applicable.]
All terms not defined herein shall have the meaning as set forth in the New York State Election Law.
In an election requiring a plurality vote, in the event that more eligible candidates than the number remaining to be elected receive for the same office or offices an equal number of votes, a second, runoff, election to fill the office shall be held ("runoff election").
Such runoff election shall be held on the first Tuesday at least 10 days after the final official certification of such tie result; provided, however, that the only persons who shall be deemed eligible for the runoff election shall be those persons who shall have received such equal number of votes, who, as a result of a tie, are eligible for election.
The order of the candidates' names on the ballot shall be the same order that the candidates appeared on the election ballot that resulted in a tie vote.
Such runoff election may be waived and the selection made by lot if each person who shall have received such equal number of votes shall file with the Village Clerk, no later than two days after such final certification of such tie results, a written notice of consent that such selection be made by lot.
