"Why should I bother to vote?" "What difference will my one ballot make out of all the millions that are cast?" Chances are you'll be hearing such questions many times between now and Election Day. They're common in every election year. An appalling number of citizens don't show up at the polls, in the mistaken belief that their "one little vote" is insignificant. Nothing could be further from the truth! History is studded with examples of how a single vote spelled the difference between victory and defeat for a candidate, a party, or sometimes even for a whole way of life."
