    Is counted? Count on me?

    My vote is counted.
    Count on me, like count on you, to be there.


    My question is what's the "is count" , "count on me" mean?

    Re: Is counted? Count on me?

    'My vote was counted' means 'My vote was included in the total'.
    'Count on me to be there' means 'You can be sure I will be there'.
    I am not a teacher.

    You can count on my vote means that you can be sure I will vote for you.
