Remember, history proves that Every Vote Counts…
In 1850, California was admitted to the union by a margin of one vote.
In 1859, Oregon was admitted to the union by a margin of one vote.
The Alaska Purchase of 1867 was ratified by just one vote — paving the way for the eventual annexation of America’s largest state in 1958.
In 1916, if presidential hopeful Charles E. Hughes had received one additional vote in each of California’s precincts, he would have defeated President Woodrow Wilson’s re-election bid
In the 1960 presidential election, an additional one vote per precinct in Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, and Texas may have altered the course of America’s modern history by denying John F. Kennedy the presidency and placing Richard Nixon in the White House 8 years earlier.
