Quebec 2018 - Tie!

Recommended Posts

Won a landslide in the Quebec 2018 election as the Coalition Avenir, only for Premier Couillard's own seat to produce an exact tie!

I don't know how it works in Quebec, but in the UK at least, after recounts if there was no winning candidate, it'd be decided by a coin toss.

Hahahaha probably there would have a recount yes :)

In real 2018 Quebec election there were 3 seats with tie results (but not perfect tie) and these were Gaspé, Ungava and Iles-de-la-Madeleine

In Ungava and Iles-de-la-Madeleine it was between 14 and 27 votes and around 40 to 60 votes. These recounts didn't change the result of the election.

In Gaspé the new Liberal Party of Quebec MP was elected with 140 to 180 votes ahead but Parti Québécois' lawyer pointed out that a WHOLE ballot box was full of Liberal votes...just full

And the recount showed that Meganne Pery Melançon from the Parti Québécois was the real winner of Gaspé's constituency.

Because of the new way of voter simulation in the favorability update, it's a lot easier to get ties. With only 500-10000 simulated "voters" voting in each seat, it's not hard for it to happen. I do wish there was like 1% of the vote just distributed randomly to make that harder to happen.
