Who wins the seats in the cantons of UR, GL, AR, AI, OW, NW

How is it decided who wins a seat in the National Council in the cantons that have only one seat?

In these cantons, in which elections are held under the first-past-the-post system, only one representative is elected to the National Council.

The result quickly becomes clear: the person with the most votes is elected.

What happens when two candidates get an equal number of votes?

If there is a tie, lots are drawn.

Who wins if two or more candidates get the same number of votes?
