For those who say their vote doesn’t make a difference, just look at the Franklin Township Trustee race.
Michael L. Kinsman defeated Mark Ballmer by two votes to win a seat on the Franklin Township Board of Trustees in the Nov. 8 General Election.
Two more votes for Ballmer would have tied the race. Two or more people taking time to go to the polls might have changed the outcome of the election.
It was no fluke, no anomaly. Over the years, there have been several cases where just a few votes changed everything.
The will of the people is gauged by elections. When more people go to the polls, the will of the people is more accurately represented.
When the next election rolls around, remember that one vote can make a difference.
