'Veep' Season 4 finale: An electoral tie may put Selina Meyer back where she started

An ending that only "Veep" could pull off happened Sunday (June 14) on the Season 4 finale of the Emmy-winning comedy series. Here's a breakdown of what happened:Senator Bill O'Brien (Brad Leland) is Selina Meyer's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) opponent in the general election. The race is neck-and-neck, with the candidates standing at 269 electoral votes for O'Brien and 256 for Meyer, with only Virginia left to be decided. Virginia has 13 electoral votes.

The reason is because the District of Columbia has three votes, which puts the total number of electoral votes at 538 (435 House members, 100 senators and three D.C. electors).According to the 12th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, when the election is indeed a tie, the House votes on the president on Jan. 20.
