With the Electoral College, someone who has a very low amount of popular votes can still be elected as President of our country.
No matter how many people may have been in favor of a specific candidate, the Electoral College can still decide whether or not he/she should be elected in the end. Does that sound fair to you?
I believe each individual can have ONE vote, and the popular vote of the many individuals should in the end add up and decide who is to become President.
This is a petition to get rid of the Electoral College.
We, the people of the United States of America, feel that it is time for our voices to be heard. Therefore, I ask that we allow the popular votes to be used as the deciding factor in choosing the President of the United States.
We know that our founding fathers had good reasons in coming up with this plan; they felt that the people couldn't be trusted and they wanted every state to have an equal voice in the election. Well, it is safe to say that with a popular vote system, every state, and every vote would be heard to its fullest. It is time to trust the people of this great nation!
We don't want electors picking our president; we want our votes to pick our president! I hereby ask that we work with our political officials to help change our system.
Now, I know there have been presidents before who were clearly elected by the electoral college, although they didn't win the popular vote. For example, Al Gore won the popular vote by about 540,000 and yet he lost the electoral college and the election all together.
It is time to rid ourselves of such a bad system that doesn't even listen to the people's voice! This is supposed to be a democracy and to keep it that way, we need EVERY VOTE TO COUNT! To all the politicians, please help the people's voice be heard by trusting the people. If you agree, please sign this petition!
This is America, where our voice should be heard...
Thanks and God Bless America.
The People of America
