My vote HAS to count other wise whats the point of voting? Back in the sixth grade my friend lost the class president election by 1 vote. So every vote counts.

Well mark, those countrys usually have elections for the Parliament, which do not effect on the ruler himself, so your right about that...But some countrys have no election and people still have the internet.

Exactly what we have here, although I have to say our queen isn't in charge. She has certain duties, but she can't decide the cource of our country on her own.
I voted "yes" btw.

The Importance of One Vote:

In 1645, one vote gave Oliver Cromwell control of England.

In 1649, one vote literally cost King Charles I of England his head.

In 1714, one vote placed King George I on the throne of England and restored the monarchy.

In 1776, one vote gave America the English language instead of German.

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.

In 1868, one vote saved President Andrew Johnson from impeachment.

In 1875, a one-vote margin changed France from a Monarchy to a republic.

In 1962, the governors of Maine, Rhode Island and North Dakota were all elected by a margin of one vote.

…And there are countless others. So yes, my vote does count!

Of course it counts. Yours could be the vote that wins your guy the election. I didn't know that about speaking Deutsch vs American Redneck English!

Topic: vote


is Aus it is compulsory to vote, if you dont you get fined unless you have religious reasons (sounds real domocratic )

unfortunatly i dont think my vote does count even though i vote in every election. because we really only have two choices of who will get in liberal or labour. and they both seem to be as bad as each other. no other partys are big enough to get in control.

On the other hand, BM, when you have like say 5 parties then governments get unstable and fall within months from their creation.
