Dear MoveOn member,
Turns out, there's a way to change how the Electoral College works and choose the president through a national popular vote, without amending the Constitution. And advocates are on track to actually do it, maybe within the next decade.
It's a mind-blowing story. If you've ever wondered if there's a better way to pick our presidents, you've got to check out this podcast.Once you hear this story, you won't be able to stop talking about it. As one listener tweeted after listening, "The Good Fight just blew my mind."
It's not every day that there's a shot at reforming one of the basic structures of our democracy. But when you hear the whole story (featuring Hendrik Hertzberg of The New Yorker), you'll realize that this is one of those days. And you'll never look at a red state/blue state map the same way again.
Thanks for all you do.
