In the case of a tie who determines the outcome of a presidential election?
Who determines the outcome of a presidential vote tie?
In the electoral college, there are 538 electors (or electoral votes), with at least 270 needed to win the presidential election. Although highly unlikely, it is possible that the electoral votes could be tied 269-269. If this were to happen, the vote would then go to Congress. It would be the duty of The House of Representatives to break the tie for the presidential election, and the duty of the Senate to break the tie for the vice presidential position.
