IMPORTANCE OF ONE VOTE

If you’ve ever thought, Why vote? My vote won’t make a difference!, then you’re missing an opportunity to elect governing officials who can make decisions that will positively impact your daily life. Complacency is common among Christians because many don’t view voting as a spiritual matter. Nothing could be further from the truth. Voting is our spiritual and political duty. History has proven the enormous power that one vote carries. In fact, it can determine the outcome of an election or mean the difference between life and death. Here are a few instances where one vote made a difference. • • • • • • • • • In 1960, Richard Nixon lost the American presidency to John F.
