We’re on the homestretch. Just hours to go.
And with razor-thin margins, even ONE could make a difference. JUST ONE VOTE . . .
- 1991: A Virginia state House seat was determined by 1 vote out of almost 13,000 cast.
- 2016: A Vermont state Senate Democratic primary was determined by 1 vote out of more than 7,400 cast.
- 2016: A Wyoming state House GOP primary was decided by just one vote, 583 to 582.
- 2002: A Connecticut state House seat was determined by 1 vote out of more than 6,000 cast. 1
Just one vote.
So your assignment:
Find one last vote!!
- Cast your vote if you haven’t already—and vote down ballot.
- Email/text/call/do a Facebook post/tweet/whatever to urge family, friends, and neighbors to vote if they haven’t already. (Feel free to cut-and-paste any or all of this post’s content. “Just do it!”)
- Participate in a local GOTV effort—make phone calls, canvas door-to-door (or volunteer to drive those who do).

Democracy is not a spectator sport. We need to be bold, think outside the box, step outside of our comfort zone—and take action. We now have only hours left to do so.
