FW: Add your name: Abolish the Electoral College

Hi there—I just wanted to make sure you saw my petition from the other day.

Hi there—I just wanted to make sure you saw my petition from the other day.

Abolish the Electoral College

Amend the Constitution to abolish the Electoral College and hold presidential elections based on popular vote. One vote for one person should determine the one leader who is supposed to answer to all the people of the country.

Dear MoveOn member,

The Electoral College has outlasted its usefulness.

Voters living in a "red" or "blue" state but voting unlike the majority in that state are disenfranchised, because their vote doesn't count. Eliminating the Electoral College will mean that "swing" states will no longer receive all the attention and the campaign stops and the empty campaign promises.

Also, the electors are selected by the two main political parties, Republican and Democrat, disenfranchising all other voters, including independents, Libertarians, and Green Party members.

End the Electoral College now.
