# What would happen if the United States presidency ended in a 269 to 269 tie and did you know there are 64 combinations that can produce it?

This map shows 1 of the combinations that can produce a 269 to 269 tie. Why have 538 points or why have so many points for a state that can match up those points? Why not have a state have 1 more or 1 less so there can't be a need for a tie breaker since 537 and 539 are both odd numbers?

There are 538 total points and due to the fixed number each state gets, there are 64 combinations of ways to get 269 to 269.

If there is a tie breaker, will they reveal it on television as they are breaking it?

Please share your views! Mine are if tied 269 to 269, whoever wins most states wins. If that's tied 25 to 25, let the House of Representatives break it but don't let them break it unless states won is also tied.
