Every American vote matters. In our nation’s history many elections across all levels of government have been decided by a few votes (only 1 vote in some elections!). Regardless of the political parties of the winners, elections have had real consequences on the lives of Americans. At OneV we believe that facts about close elections and the clear impact of election outcomes on everyday lives are important reminders for all Americans to cherish the right to vote.
