Ever since 2016, I don't take anything for granted.. Vote like your ballot could change the outcome.


@kylepat also, I live in the UK and know people who voted for brexit to "protest", sure it would lose and their vote wouldn't matter.

@celesteh Hear, hear.

In 2013, the Virginia Attorney General race came down to 907 votes, 0.04% of the total votes cast. In 2014, that AG (Herring) announced the office would not be defending the loathsome Virginia Marriage Amendment, playing no small part in its defeat in court and thus same-sex marriage finally being recognized in Virginia.

907 people swung that. If you don't think your vote matters, remember that it probably matters to _someone_. Help them out.
