With the 2020 presidential election just days away, many are speculating about what would happen if there is a tie in the Electoral College vote. One possible outcome could be, President Nancy Pelosi.
Although unlikely, an Electoral College tie is not entirely impossible and does have historical precedent.
But 538 is an even number, meaning there could be a scenario in which both candidates receive 269 electoral votes. In that outcome, the vote would go to the U.S. House of Representatives to break the tie.
The vice president, meanwhile, would be chosen by the Senate in the case of a tie. This means that the U.S. could have a Republican president and Democratic vice president.
If neither the Senate nor the House can pick someone, then the speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi would become acting president until both chambers of Congress decide on someone.
