Yes, your vote matters

Dear Editor,

There were 77,000,000 votes cast. We’ve all read or heard about how important a majority control of the U.S. Senate is to either the Democratic or the Republican party.

Just 22,000 votes in Missouri and 19,000 votes in New Hampshire made the difference for Republican control.

There are an endless number of similar comparisons across the fifty states for other state and local offices. And here in Colorado we’re going to be waiting quite a few more days for the Beauprez-Feeley contest for Representative to be concluded.

If you sat at home because “my vote won’t matter anyway” I hope you change your mind before the next election for whatever purpose a ballot is required.
