Yes, Virginia, Every Vote Does Count This is What’s Trending Today There is a saying in America that “every vote counts.” On Tuesday in the U.S. state of Virginia, the saying appeared to come true. A single vote in the state might have been responsible for the end to years of Republican legislative control in the House of Delegates. There were 23,215 votes cast in the city of Newport News on Election Day last month. Voters were choosing between David Yancey and Shelly Simonds as their representative to the Virginia House of Delegates. Yancey held a small lead of 10 votes going into the recount on Tuesday. After five hours of re-examining ballots, election officials announced the results: 11,608 votes for Simonds and 11,607 votes for Yancey. By just one vote, Democrat Shelly Simonds defeated a three-term Republican incumbent David Yancey. Simonds’ victory means Republicans and Democrats now have equal power in the Virginia House of Delegates. The Republican Party has controlled the house for the last 17 years. “We’re now 50-50,” Virginia’s Governor Terry McAuliffe told The Associated Press. “And we won it by one vote. Don’t tell me that every vote doesn’t count.” Yes, Virginia, Every Vote Does Count And that's What's Trending Today. Hai Do wrote this story for Learning English based on AP NEWS reports.
