In that case thw winner(s) would be drawn randomly.  The scanning tool
scripts actually assigns each candidate a tiebreaker number via
/dev/urandom, but we have not yet decided if we would do that or, for
example, a physical coin toss.

We have had ties in the past, and had one this time too, but none that
has ever crossed the cut line.
