Candidates generally like the Electoral College. It allows them to focus their time, energy and money on key states. Citizens should not be as happy with a system that disenfranchises so many voters.
If our president was elected by popular vote candidates would be forced to appeal to all voters across the country. They would no longer be able to simply write off entire regionals as a lost cause and simply take other states for granted.
It’s time that one man, one vote becomes more than a slogan. It’s time for everyone’s vote to count. Changing the Constitution is a serious, difficult thing, but it’s time to revisit the Electoral College.
