Kentucky city council race tied after candidate’s wife doesn’t vote

vote

They say every vote counts….and one candidate is learning that the hard way! Robert McDonald finished his Walton, Kentucky city council race tied with opponent Olivia Ballou at 669 votes each. But here is the kicker…McDonald’s wife didn’t vote! If she had, assuming she would have voted for her husband, he would have won!

So why didn’t Katie McDonald vote? Her husband says she works, goes to school and raises three kids, so she just didn’t have time – and he says he doesn’t blame her! Mrs. McDonald even asked her husband if she should run to the polls at the last minute and he told her that he didn’t think one vote would matter.

The tied city council race will now come down to a coin toss unless one of the candidates asks for a recount.

What do you think about this very unusual turn of events? Sound off!
