Rumor vs Reality

Published October 21, 2020

Your vote determines how the country, your state, and your town are run. No matter what the polls say about your preferred candidates – you can’t be sure of the outcome.

The 2020 Elections decide not only the president, but state and local officials. Those lower level offices from senators and representatives down to city clerk and municipal judge. Each of them shapes how your tax dollars are spent and the world in which you live. They have a huge impact on your area from schools to budgets, traffic management, local celebrations, and much more.

The 2016 presidential election was ultimately decided by a total of about 78,000 votes across three states. The 2000 election was decided by 537 votes in one state. Each one of those votes mattered.
