"Don't be surprised but - even a single vote counts. Elections are won every year by a mere handful of votes. For example, just check the voting record of the nation. You'll find…In 1936 New Hampshire's First District Congressman was elected by the margin of 17 votes - our of 104,000 cast. ...In 1942 Chester Cross won Pennsylvania's 22nd District by only 71 votes. ...In 1946 in Ohio, Congressman Homer Ramey defeated Michael DiSalle by 337 votes out of 118,000 cast - less than one vote per precinct."
