…at least if you live in Minnesota.
AbuS had asked if it really mattered whether or not he voted, to which I said, um yeah, remember 2008? Al Franken winning by 225 votes?
We had business is rural central Minnesota (land of Michelle Bachmann) on Tuesday and were 2 hours and 10 minutes away from our polling place, with only 2 hours and 15 minutes left to vote. Alhamdulilah, traffic was on our side and AbuS cast his first general election ballot as a US citizen.
And so now where are we? Recount. Again. The democrat leads by .25%. That’s 8,856 votes, unofficially. So guess where that leaves us? With a republican senate, a republican house, and our current republican governor who has graciously volunteered to stay on so that he can shove through what the democrats have been blocking these last 8 years years. *sigh*
So yes, Virginia, your vote does count. At least in Minnesota.
