Rev. Al Sharpton expresses just how important votes are by highlighting the Virgina house recount.
“We have been saying over and over again how every vote counts and nothing represent that more in the recount vote in the Virginia House of Delegates,” explained Sharpton.
The recount found that democrat Shelly Simmonds won over Republican David Yancy by one vote.
“Because of that one vote difference, you see that they were able to save and expand on Medicare in Virgina. Imagine if you were the one person,” explained Sharpton.
Every time you think that you vote won’t be needed, Sharpton encourages you to, “remember that one vote in Virginia.”
