When candidates say every vote counts, they mean it as inspirational commentary on Democracy. In Annapolis politics, the expression can be a depressing reminder of how few people vote.
In Annapolis’ 2009 Democratic primary, the margin between the win ner, Zina Pierre, and the runner up, Josh Cohen, was 127 votes.

This in a city with more than 18,000 registered voters.
