It’s said all the time that everyone’s vote counts and exercising the right to vote is very important. Rev. Al Sharpton gives a great example of the power of voting with teh Virginia House of Delegates recount.

“We have been saying over and over again how every vote counts and nothing represent that more in the recount vote in the Virginia House of Delegates,” explained Sharpton.

The recount found democrat Shelly Simmonds won over Republican David Yancy by one vote.

“Because of that one vote difference, you see that they were able to save and expand on Medicare in Virgina. Imagine if you were the one person,” explained Sharpton.

Every time you think that you vote won’t be needed, Sharpton encourages you to, “remember that one vote in Virginia.”
