American History - One Vote by State
In Ohio One Vote Does Count
I believe my 'one vote' lists; National, by State, and Other; to be the most comprehensive
listing on the internet.
Actually it is not just 1 vote but is 1 vote
over or shy of a majority, or 'super-majority'.
Any one voter of the victory tally had the power to sway the
victory to a tie or the opposition. One vote is victory among many when the many have the
majority. - Roger W Hancock.
I have included where one vote each over several precincts could have made a difference.
"A nation is only an
individual multiplied." - Mark Twain,
"The Turning-Point of My Life"
of one vote.
|| 1 vote
defeated General Duncan McArthur giving Robert Lucasto the
1 vote in 1898, gave the
Findlay Council position to Republican, W.F. Trueslow after a
tie of 174-174 in one of the northern wards.
1 vote in each
precinct in Ohio carried that state for incumbent President
Harry Truman, securing his victory over Thomas E. Dewey.
The same could be said of California.
|| 1 vote
in 1 precinct in 1 city selected the mayor of Huron, Ohio.
1 vote in each precinct in Ohio could have elected President
Gerald Ford instead of
Carter. - Inaccurate, I believe the
information was confused with the race for Governor (see next entry). Carter's lead over Ford in Ohio was 11,116.
Had Gerald Ford won Ohio, those electoral votes would have turned
the election. (If the electoral votes from Ohio were enough
to sway, then maybe accurate) See next entry
|| 1 vote per
precinct in Ohio allowed pro-life Governor James Rhodes to beat
out challenging pro-abortion Richard Celeste for the
|| 1 vote over
50% elected Gerald Reed Mayor of Burbank, OH.
1 vote in the race for Cleveland Heights municipal judge,
gave Lynn Toler the finish ahead of Russell Baron.
1 vote for 19-year-old Jan Hartman edged her identical twin
sister, Ann, in a race for a city council seat in Bremen,
1 vote in just five precincts gave William Taylor the
victory over Katherine Walsh in a State House race. Taylor
became the 51st pro-life member, one more than needed for a
majority. Ohio has 99 total members in the house.
1 vote in a recount passed a March 2004 vote for a school
district levy in Chillicothe, Ohio. The election night count
showed the levy had failed by 27 votes.
