Listen up, folks, there's a new constable in town! (http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/08/09/tennessee-official-wins-election-with-only-one-vote-her-own/)

In Sneedsville, Tennessee, a woman's father encouraged her to be a write-in candidate for the position of constable in her county's district elections, since nobody was vying for the position. Only 131 people turned out to vote in the district elections. Only one person marked a vote in the constable category - the woman who voted for herself.

A singe vote was cast and that was by the winner herself - a write-in candidate.

C'mon folks, these are the news stories that novel ideas are made of!

See every vote does count. So they should count every vote.
