Does One Vote Make A Difference?
doesn't make a difference
Imagine that you can cast your vote as the last voter. All the votes have been already cast and even counted. You want to vote B. Party A got 15 million votes. Party B got 5 million votes. You can either cast or not cast the vote. It still won't make the difference.
Millions of people vote. One vote will not swing an election.
Voting works in aggregate, it's the sum of all its voices. The more voices, the more accurate the vote result. Just because one side does not win, does not mean the vote had no consequence. Losing by 2% versus 50% are vastly different messages, and one the winning party must take note of.
If every voter thought so, the elections wouldn't work.
At the margin one vote makes a difference.
