Indecision desk

In three provinces or territories, coloured here in red, a tie vote in a provincial or territorial election is decided by a random draw, or, in the case of PEI, a coin toss.
In Ontario and New Brunswick (blue), the returning officer casts a deciding vote.
In the rest of the country, and federally (green), the tie result is voided and a new election is held.
The numbers are references to the relevant provision of the appropriate electoral legislation.
