Well, being as how presidents are selected by an electoral college and not actually by votes.
Individual votes mean very little. Collectively, I don't think they mean much either.
Still, I vote!! If you don't vote, you can't bitch!!

I guess by your question they must be - frankly calculating one persons effect on a larger (family/friends?) group would be totally imposable.
The easy way is (providing ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED is 100% correct) would be:
(Your voter / Total number of voters) * 100 = your voters % of the entire vote.
To do it with your figures...
(1 / 122,000,000) * 100 = 8.1967213114754098360655737704918e-7
8.1967213114754098360655737704918e-9 * 100 = 8.1967213114754098360655737704918e-7
Lets round it!!
-7 means decimal goes left 7 places.
0.000000819672% (rounded to 12dp)
p.s If a million voted:.... one in a million would be 0.0001% of the total vote
