Every vote counts. We hear it year to year during election season, but do you believe it? For many, it may seem difficult to consider the sigificance of one vote - especially when looking at presidential elections because of the Electoral College. Yet, those are the elections when more and more Americans hit the polls.
This year, as I traveled from polling place to polling place, I heard the same responses. The turnout was low, sure, but it was consistent with regional elections. Why? The people running for municipal government are the people who choose how your tax dollars are spent. They are the people you may cross paths with at a local sporting event, the grocery store, even walking down your street.
They are the people you choose by voting, or rather, put into office by not voting.
