QUIZ: Can a single vote really make a difference?

Does my vote matter?

At Down Home, we hear people say that all the time. In the local elections that affect our day-to-day lives, every single vote matters. When it comes to municipal races, the weight of a vote goes up. Why? Because folks tend to ignore those races, and information about municipal positions aren’t as widely shared as it is during the presidential years.

In our small towns, every single vote has to be counted, because some of these races literally come down to a coin toss!
