One Vote Can Make a Difference November 11, 2008

I completely support a popular voting system in our elections as opposed to the electoral college because then votes count regardless of what color state you live in.  Sometimes elections are determined by a very narrow margin like this one I read about in the Freakonomics Blog.

In Lincoln County, Mississippi the elections commissioner was determined by a single vote.  Janie Sisco unseated 20-year-incumbent Charles Monroe Smith.  I thought it was interesting that the vote was 1,580 to 1,579 and all came down to one person making a difference.  Just goes to show that your vote can count.
