On this day in history, December 12, 2000
The U.S. Supreme Court put an end to the Presidential election Florida recount between George Bush and Al Gore.
Many American were asking themselves if they would ever vote again. Was the right to vote taken away during the weeks leading up to the Supreme Court’s decision? Maybe it was, maybe it was not. But ironically, the same thing happened in the State of Alabama Governor election two years later. While the apparent winner was celebrating his victory, the votes were still being tallied. Again, people went through a long time period wondering who won the election. Several days later, the other gentleman won the election.
