Wonder if your vote really matters?

In Longmeadow MA, the Prop 2 1/2 override, (Thanks Mitt Romney for making local municipalities override local property tax limits over and over again in order to fund the schools that you defunded so you could claim to have "lowered taxes" in your Presidential run) designed to level fund their schools, passed by 4 votes. Last time it failed by 10.

In Northampton MA a City Councilor retained his Ward 5 seat by 10 votes, in my opinion, a seat that really mattered were it to be lost.

And here's the kicker. I didn't have to work at all to find these examples. It didn't require hours of searching the internet for evidence of voter importance. These were garnered from my local news.

Hope you voted, and that you understood that no matter how close an election was or was not, your vote mattered.
