What’s 1 vote?

Many who don’t vote, do so because they don’t think their single vote will make a difference. I’d like them to tell that to Mike Kelly and Karl Kassel in our state senate district. The final votes are in and Mr. Kelly won by just one vote. That’s right just 1 vote separated them with more than 10,000 votes cast! Needless to say there will be a recount.

UPDATE 12/10/08

The recount is complete and the final result is Mr. Kelly has won by just 4 votes! (5024  Kelly to 5020 Kassel)

  1. Whoa. I’ve heard of this happening in history, but I tend to be one of those people who say, “Ah, but that was then…”

    Thanks for the reminder [smile].

  2. When the election was held last month, it was pretty close. Then they declared 1 vote separated them but there were still votes to count. Now that they have all been counted, they’re still only 1 vote apart. It’s pretty exciting. I wish we could have them both in cases like this.
