In Clatsop County, they've just finished counting the ballots in a recall campaign against two of their county commissioners. (They were under fire due to their support of the Bradwood Landing LNG facility.)
One commissioner, Jeff Hazen, handily defeated the recall. But the other, Ann Samuelson, lost her effort to stay on the county commission - by a vote of 1013 votes to 1009 votes.
As Evan Manvel over at the OLCV blog notes, "if just two of those people who voted "yes" changed their votes to "no" the recall would fail."
So, yes, your vote counts. And all your volunteer time and all your financial donations also count. No one ever designs a campaign plan to win by such a razor-thin margin - but it does happen.
There are apparently a few outstanding challenged ballots and there will, of course, also be a recount. So, stay tuned. There's more on the Clatsop County story from the Daily Astorian (including the fascinating note that this is the second time in two years that Samuelson has been recalled from an elected post.)
