Why must the source of randomness be chosen before the elections?  It
seems to me that the source doesn't matter so much as long as it is
decided before the random numbers are known.

In other words, if a tie happened, we'd choose a source of randomness
that is going to occur to break the tie.  I guess it's easier to
choose before the elections by the old board.

It's probably worth just choosing a common one and only changing it
later if necessary.  The board can just have a standard one like the
NY state lottery numbers or something. That would only need
modification if they stopped having a lottery.
