Voting for President

  • Situation: Close race for President. Player A is ahead by 1 vote. Player B ties Player A. At next vote count, Player B becomes President. Vote counts stay the same until next day. No change in President. Why?

    If a tie gets the other person the job, why doesn't the tie cause a switch the next day?

    I would think that a person needs to get 1 more vote than the other to take the job, not just a tie.

    I think you're completely right but hey, this is Rail Nation with its own rules/algorithms ;)

  • I think this was a bug. It didn't use to be like this. A tie for President/Mayor vote usually would keep the old President/Mayor. So it can not have been someone voting in the last minute, and then withdrawing their vote shortly after?

  • A tie normally should resolve in a new election, that seems a bit strange.
    Would you mind raising a ticket with all the info to our support, so they can check it.
