Power is the ability of someone to carry out their will over the resistance of others. Functionalists would consider everyone's vote as being important and embrace the traditional view of how participating in an election is an exercise in the distribution of power. Conflict theorists see the individual vote as being a facade, claiming that the real source of power in the United States is concealed among a select few who make all the major decisions.
