Imagine you are on a committee studying whether or not to make changes to the Electoral College system. What would you recommend? In a well-written paragraph, explain your position with at least three reasons
The Electoral College System definitely has some flaws, however, we still use it today. If I had a say in changing the system, I would recommend abolishing it. One problem with it is that the electors don't have to vote for the state's popular vote. People in America are voting for what they want. If the system was changed then they would have a better chance of making a more direct impact with their vote. Another reason for abolishing it is that the president can still win even though they did not earn the popular vote. The president is chosen by the majority of electoral votes. A third reason is that population determines the number of electoral votes. California has the most electoral votes and a smaller state like Wyoming would not have nearly as many. The smaller states however, have more power when it comes to individual voters when comparing the two states. Smaller states have a smaller number of people per electoral vote and therefore have more power per vote.
