Been thinking about RCV a lot because Virginia (where I live) may pass a bill to use it in state elections. Also been thinking about ties in elections because one of the delegate districts here is tied and is going to be decided by a straw drawing, no joke.
I want to know if in the final round of RCV if say two remaining candidates both get exactly the same number of votes after the rest of the candidates are eliminated if there is a better way than a coin toss to decide? Could you consider the previous round to see which of those two candidates had the most votes at that point? Would that be fair? I want to hear folks thoughts and if y'all have found any sources for this because I can't.
