This series tests the quality and skill of your interactions, at home and at work. It is an opportunity to honestly examine what you would do in such a hypothetical situation, and give a response from your particular perspective.

DILEMMA: Your date or partner is not keen on voting, does not believe in its effectiveness, and refuses to vote, because, in their words, “One vote doesn’t change anything.”

You take the opposite view, that one vote can make a difference, especially in marginal counts. You cite American Andrew Jackson in 1824 “who won the presidential popular vote, but lost by one vote in the House of Representatives to John Quincy Adams, after an Electoral College deadlock”. (Source: The Power of One Vote – Middleton, MA)
