PA House turns blue

An update on the election for state representative in the 156th Legislative District (where I live)--after the absentee votes were counted Democrat Barbara McIlvaine Smith has now won by 23 votes over Republican Shannon Royer. That victory means that the majority of the Pennsylvania state house of Representatives has now shifted to the Democrats. The last time the Democrats had the majority there was twelve years ago. Whether Royer will have demand a recount is not certain at this point. The fact that Smith has now won by only 23 votes is more proof that if you think your vote does not count, you're wrong.
