    I also figured out what I'm going to do for the tie-breaker. It might not be the coolest way to do it, but it's simple.

    A paper bag (or other container) with slips of paper numbered 1-20 (or 30, 40, 50, etc.). To break the tie, each person takes out a piece of paper and the highest number wins. This can be reused several times without having to have any of the numbers put back into the bag, and when done, simply throw it out (no need to store it!).

    How about a wall people to write on?

    Our party was last Saturday and the pipe cleaners worked really well again. People liked walking around with their "votes" on their arm and it made it super easy to tell who was the winner. Like last year, we had a tie in the Best Child Costume contest, and the tie-breaker bag worked great.

    What I liked best about both of these solutions is that it kept both me and my wife out of the decision making process and we spent zero time counting votes before the announcement.

    The only thing I would change is adding an age range to the "Best Child Costume" on the voting key, as people had different opinions of what an adult was (teens vs no teens).

    I am with you Banshee3....usually I recruit two people and the three of us do a quick who gets "best couples costumes", etc. I would really enjoy the guests voting but I don't want to miss out on the party and fun and hosting to count votes.
