    One person’s vote really does matter, don’t throw your vote away by not voting. It can make a difference.

    One vote changed the course or history in the following situations.

    1645- One vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England. The Irish remember.
    1649- One vote gave the power to execute Charles I
    1776- One vote gave the United States the English language instead of German
    1836- one vote made Marcus Morton governor of Massachusetts
    1845- one vote made Texas the newest state of the union
    1868- one vote kept Andrew Johnson from being impeached as President
    1875- one vote changed France from a monarchy to a Republic
    1876- one vote (electoral)made Rutherford B. Hayes President
    1923- one vote gave Adolf Hitler control of the Nazi Party
    1941- one vote saved the Selective Service System(draft) 12 weeks before Pearl Harbor
    1993- one vote gave the United States the largest tax increase ever in it’s history. The deciding vote was made by then Assemblyman Schumer in negotiations with Then President Clinton. Assemblyman Schumer then became Senator Schumer at the next election due to heavy Democratic backing.
