The United States Electoral College is the mechanism established by the United States Constitution for the indirect election of the President of the United States and Vice President of the United States. Citizens of the United States vote in each state at a general election to choose a slate of "electors" pledged to vote for a party's candidate. The Twelfth Amendment requires each elector to cast one vote for president and another vote for vice president.
No, but repeal the Permanent Reapportionment Act of 1929 and add seats to the House so each House member represents the same number of constituents. Thus making the Electoral College more in line with it's intention
Establish a non-partisan Federal Electoral Commission that operates elections according to consistent national standards, like the Australian Electoral Commission. No corruption, no fraud, layers and layers of checks and balances, votes counted and reported in real time accurately and beyond dispute. The current American system is a worldwide joke.
Our political party system is flawed. The lines that represent districts have been altered to favor one party before. Popular vote doesn't automatically win. People dont even have a real chance to vote for someone else if they hate the two main candidates. Political parties are non-partisan and now it feels like people vote on party not policy.
