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

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