As if you didn’t have enough nightmares, consider this: What happens if the Presidential race ends in an electoral tie – 269-269, with neither candidate getting a majority?

This is a very real possibility. In fact, it’s more likely than ever to occur this time. The Washington Times explains how – and what’s worse, nobody is completely sure what happens next.

Obviously, the uncertainty and confusion surrounding this possibility would be bad for the country. It would be helpful if the House and Senate could come to an agreement ahead of time on exactly what the process would be, just in case.
