    Your vote does NOT count.

    This notion is little more than a piece of propaganda peddled by politicians to engage masses of voters to place votes for them.

    They don't look at individuals but blocks of voters. So indeed, you vote counts for them.

    Unless you can organise a community to vote for a particular candidate, you are making nothing more than an ideological decision.

    Or if you believe in a 'civic duty', you are being a dutiful citizen.

    You are not making a decision that protects your interests, because you don't have the power to do so. Whether you vote for someone who is more or less likely to win is a triviality.

    You seem to be of the view your vote doesn't count unless you win.....

    It was counted you just weren't in the majority it shouldn't prohibit you from voting.

    End of short story
