What happens when there is a tie vote for moves?

If there is a tie vote for one or more moves then the move that has the most recent vote is chosen as the winning move. 

For example, if there are four people on a Vote Chess team trying to decide between e4 and d4, and the votes happen in this order: 

John chess votes e4

Mary votes d4

Sarah votes d4

Jane votes e4

Both moves have two votes each, but e4 would win the tie because it has the most recently placed vote. If there was another vote for e4, then another vote for d4 before time ran out for voting, then d4 would win.
