Concerns over mail-in ballots and voting security have many predicting drawn-out legal fights and a contested election this November. But deciding the winner of a Presidential election isn't always easy. In 1800, the race between President John Adams and his opponent, Thomas Jefferson, ended in a tie that was eventually broken by the House of Representatives. Edward J. Larson, Professor of law and history at Pepperdine University, discusses the story behind the election of 1800 and how those contentious political times compare to today.
