Tie vote in Hesperia election ends with drawing

The next time you hear someone say they don't think their vote matters, ask the voters in Hesperia about it. Incumbent Hesperia Board of Trustee member Scott Kroepell and challenger Jake Hornbrook each received 78 votes in Tuesday's village election. Election law required the race to be determined by a drawing. Hornbrook drew the paper marked "elected,' which means Kroepell will lose his seat. The two men are also second cousins, and the race was just one vote away from ending in a three-way tie.
