End the Electoral College

This petition had 130 supporters

In order to have a true Democracy, every vote should count. Under our present system of having an Electoral College, in all but two states, the winner gets all the Electoral College votes even if he/she only wins by one vote. This effectively means that the 'minority' vote voters have votes that are not even counted.  The only two states that award EC votes proportionately are Nebraska and Maine. If we want a true Democracy, every vote should be counted and "count". The Electoral College has put five men in the White House who did not receive the majority vote.....the latest being Trump, who actually lost by 2 million or so votes, and GW, who lost by about 5 million. Arguably, these last two classify among the worst, ever. And the only reason they got to be President, is because the Electoral College elected them. Not us. Our voting system is not "representative" but should be.
