Default Re: Vive la Resistance! aka non-Trump US politics

The latest recount in Virginia's House of Delegates is now over. The Democrat is certified as having won the seat by *drumroll* one vote. This is not hyperbole; the final total is 11,608 votes for the Democrat to 11,607 for the Republican. Let no one tell you your vote doesn't matter. And thank God the last vote wasn't thrown away on some third-party purity wanker candidate.

Democrats and Republicans now each control fifty seats. There are two other recounts still going, but due to the size of their respective margins, this total is unlikely to change. More here, here, and here.
