Pamela Piazza was named to the Celoron Village Board Thursday night.
A board drawing by lot was required when Ms. Piazza, a Republican, and Clifton Darling, a Democrat, finished with 185 votes each.
The deadlock surfaced Tuesday after absentee ballots were counted from the March 21 village election. Ms. Piazza held a slim lead on election night.
The term, to fill a vacancy, is for one year.
