There were a lot of close votes around the state Tuesday, but none closer than the race for supervisor in the Town of Red River in Kewaunee County.
Both Mark Lefebvre and James Jonet ended up with 89 votes in the race for Town Board Supervisor 1.
Lefebvre says the two men drew cards to break the tie.
"He drew a 10, I drew a 4, so I lost," says Lefebvre.
Lefebvre says the Board of Canvassers determined that 14 people in the town did not cast a vote for supervisor. Lefebvre says had some or all of those people voted for supervisor there's a good chance things would not have been determined by the luck of the draw.
Although Lefebvre ended up on the short end of the stick in the supervisor's race he was a winner on another front. Lefebvre -- who was set to relinquish his post as town constable -- was declared the winner in the constable's race after capturing the most write-in votes.
