On Fox they mentioned if it's 269, it goes to the House where they vote by states (meaning Bush wins because Republicans control more states). Not sure about if it's under 269.

I'm pretty sure Bush wins regardless of the voting.

You are all sadly uninformed. We signed an agreement in 1951 that allowed Guam to be the tie breaker.
