Coin flips have decided two tied elections in Idaho.

On Wednesday, Glen Loveland won a coin toss and a seat on the Heyburn City Council in south-central Idaho.

Earlier this month he tied incumbent councilman Dick Galbraith with 112 votes.

On Tuesday, Barbara Lowe won a coin toss and a seat on the White Bird City Council in west-central Idaho.

Lowe and Paul Sand each received 26 votes in the Nov. 6 election.

In each of the coin flips, the city clerk performed the duties.
