DOES ONE VOTE MATTER????
Yes! Your ONE VOTE matters. Voter participation often suffers because of the generally accepted belief that “one vote really can’t make a difference.” Here is historical proof quite to the contrary!
1645: 1 VOTE gave control of England to Oliver Cromwell.
1649: 1 VOTE approved the beheading of King Charles I.
1800: 1 VOTE made Thomas Jefferson president instead of Aaron Burr.
1845: 1 VOTE brought Texas into the United States.
1850: 1 VOTE admitted California and Oregon into the United States.
1868: 1 VOTE saved President Andrew Johnson from Impeachment.
1875: 1 VOTE ended the monarchy in France for a voting democracy.
1876: 1 VOTE made Rutherford B. Hayes a United States President.
1923: 1 VOTE placed Adolph Hitler as the leader of the Nazi Party.
1993: 1 VOTE by Al Gore approved the largest tax increase in American history.
In the United States, 1 VOTE DOES MATTER. Be the ONE!!
