ONE PERSON – ONE VOTE

 

The outdated Electoral College is dumbing down the process that should be determining the outcome of our presidential elections. The basic purpose of the College being to balance out the power of one state against another, but states are unequal. California paying most and getting about a 75% return on what they contribute to the national treasury.

If it is possible to determine what the popular vote is, then it is time to move to ONE PERSON – ONE VOTE.

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE NO LONGER WORKS:

CALIFORNIA HAS A POPULATION OF 38.8 MILLION AND 55 ELECTORAL VOTES: 1 VOTE REPRESENTS 70,5454.5 PEOPLE.

ALASKA HAS A POPULATION OF 740,000 AND 3 ELECTORAL VOTES: 1 VOTE REPRESENTS 24,6666.6 PEOPLE.

ARKANSAS HAS A POPULATION OF 3 MILLION PEOPLE AND 6 ELECTORAL VOTES: 1 VOTE REPRESENTS 50,000 PEOPLE.

ALASKA’S ELECTORAL VOTES HAVE NEARLY 3 TIMES THE VALUE OF A CALIFORNIA ELECTORAL VOTE. IN OTHER WORDS, CALIFORNIA GETS THE SHAFT, SO DOES NEW YORK STATE BY HAVING THE VALUE OF THEIR ELECTORAL VOTES WATERED DOWN. IT IS NOT A FAIR NOR ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF OUR NATION’S VOTING. IT NEEDS TO BE DONE AWAY WITH.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    unfortunately one vote doesn’t equal one vote unless it is in the same state…you have to consider the States authority also…My vote in Nevada should not be equal to a persons vote in either Florida or New York for that matter ! If you base it on the 2016 election …winning just the popular vote shouldn’t necessarily win you the election !

    I responded to your question on Craig L.A. the definition of Democracy and Republic are the difference ….the Founding Fathers were Brilliant to develop such a great system to prevent idiot voters from stealing a National Election !

      Thank you very much for your post!
      Is that stated somewhere that you can reference? If we can reliably have a popular vote with the current system, why not use it? The imbalance in the value of electoral votes is clear to see. We are not basing this on the last election, but many in the past as well.
      The main reason the vast majority of registered voters do not vote is they feel they are being cheated, their vote does not count.
      Using a popular vote count would make everyone feel as if they had an equal voice. Currently, that is not so and why, in any election, there is such apathy.
      Apathy is the issue here, not politics
