One Vote Does Make a Difference

Bradley Mattes   |   November 21, 2012

Every election cycle you hear a number of people say, “My one vote doesn’t make a difference.” If anyone says that to Bobby McDonald in Walton, Kentucky, I’m sure he’ll set them straight. He was running for the Walton City Council. Since he was known around town, Bobby thought he had a good chance of winning. When the votes were totaled, it was a tie. Both candidates got 669 votes. This is where the story gets really painful. Bobby would’ve won the election if his wife had voted! This busy mother of three works nights and is finishing nurse’s training. She woke up ten minutes before the polls closed and asked her husband if she should go vote. Bobby said he didn’t think one vote would matter. Well it did. Let this be a lesson to us all.
