For example, here in New Mexico, in Southwest US, if there is a tie in
an election then it's broken by a game of chance, like poker or dice.
Every few years there's a tie for a local election which is resolved this
way.

Were electronic voting pushed even more, would that mean we
would end up resolving it with video poker?  I hope not.  There's
something visceral about the two candidates, meeting in front of
the county courthouse, at noon, mumuring "draw", and playing a
game of  Hi-Low.
