When 3 candidates won by 1 vote the same day
In the village of Joy in Mercer County, Gail Tucker became village president by a 69-68 margin.
In Swan Township in Warren County, the top four vote-getters won seats as township trustees. The fourth-place finisher had 92 votes, and James Anderson came in fifth place with 91 votes. He lost by one.
Those votes all occurred within a few miles of each other on April 7, 1981--thirty-three years ago. I remember that day every time an election rolls around.
So I will vote tomorrow. I know it matters.
