DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) A Dodge City official has won re-election after his name was drawn from a hat.
The Dodge City Daily Globe reports that a canvass of votes in last week's elections showed City Commissioner Kent Smoll and challenger Joe Peters with 424 votes each.
On Monday, both names were placed in a red baseball cap, and a Ford County employee drew Smoll's name. Peters is a businessman and part-time sheriff's deputy, and several other officials, including a fellow deputy, passed on the responsibility of picking the winner.
Smoll will serve a two-year term on the city commission. Incumbent Rick Sowers was also re-elected, and voters chose former Kansas House member Jan Scoggins for the third seat at stake.
