ELECTORAL COLLEGE: Should the United States Continue to Use the Electoral College in Presidential Elections?
For more than 200 years, the Electoral College has promoted unity and stability in U.S. politics. The system ensures that all Americans, including those living in less populated areas, maintain a voice in government. The United States should preserve the system.
The Electoral College is an undemocratic system that no longer serves as originally intended. The unequal distribution of electoral votes between states discounts millions of votes. The United States should replace it with a popular vote.
