|Year||Election||Vote Margin (Percent)||Vote Margin (Votes)||Votes Cast (Total)||Description|
|2017||Virginia House of Delegates||District 94||0%||0||23,216||The initial vote count had incumbent Republican David Yancey ahead by 13 votes. After a canvas that included provisional ballots, Yancey’s lead was cut to 10 votes. Following a recount, Yancey trailed Democratic challenger Shelly Simmonds by one vote out of 23,215 cast. After review by a three-judge panel appointed by the Virginia Supreme Court, a disputed ballot that had been excluded as an overvote was instead counted for Yancey and the race was certified as a tie with the candidates to draw lots to determine a winner. The drawing of lots was later postponed after Simonds asked a state court to reconsider the dispute ballot. Interestingly, control of this single seat would determine whether Republicans controlled the House of Delegates or if the whole House would be tied.|
|2016||Vermont State House||Windsor-Orange 1 District||0.0498%||1||2,007||This was the fourth matchup between incumbent Democrat Sarah Buxton and Republican David Ainsworth (their first matchup had also been decided by one vote). The initial tally had Buxton leading by 3 votes: 1,003–1,000.
The first recount had them both tied at 1,000.
The second recount then had Ainsworth win by one vote 1,004–1,003. Buxton did not make any further appeals and this was the final result.
|2016||Pennsylvania State House of Representatives||PA-31||0.07381%||28||37,936||Democrat Perry Warren defeated Republican Ryan Gallagher for District 31 of the PA House of Representatives.|
|2015||Mississippi State House||Legislative district 79||0%||0||9,178||Democrat incumbent Blaine Eaton initially won re-election over Republican Mark Tullos by drawing the long straw. However, Tullos asked the State House to seat him, and they did so in a largely party-line vote.|
|2012||New Mexico House of Representatives||District 37||0.00064%||8||12,526||Two weeks after the election was over, the vote was still tied and went to a recount, which Republican Terry McMillan won by 8 votes. After another close loss in 2014, Democrat Joanne Ferrary defeated McMillan in 2016.|
|2012||Alaska State House||District 34||0.004%||32||8,328||At one point tied up, this race was finalized after a recount.|
