Think your vote doesn't count?

So this guy in Ohio is a candidate trying to retain his seat on the local Democratic board and it's a tight race. The guy has two sons who are of voting age. One son lives across the street from his parents, one son is a college student living at home. With his parents. With his mom and the dad who is running for re-election.

So the dad's race ends in a tie, 43 votes for him, 43 votes for the woman running against him. The winner was to be determined by a coin toss. The man lost the coin toss, so now he loses his seat.

Oh, yeah. The two sons? They "forgot" to vote.
