Abolish the Electoral College

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Amend the constitution to abolish the Electoral College. Hold presidential elections based on popular vote. One person one vote to determine the one leader who is supposed to answer to all the people of the country.
There are currently 658,583 signatures. NEW goal - We need 675,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Electoral College has outlasted its usefulness. It is part of the constitution, written when communication was by pony express. Voters currently living and voting in a "red" or "blue" state are disenfranchised, because their vote doesn't matter. Eliminating the electoral college means: no "swing" states getting all the attention and all the campaign stops and all the empty campaign promises. The electoral members are selected by the two main political parties, Republican and Democrat, disenfranchising all other voters, independent, Libertarian, etc. End it now.
