Jerrika Jensen started this petition to Students of Weber State University

The Electoral College is a founding principle of this country, it brings balance and stability to the popular voting system, and critics of the Electoral College who wish to abolish it do not understand the College nor do they understand how a reformation would impact the country. By signing my petition, you can help protect the Electoral College. The College is sure to be attacked after the final results of the election, but you can join forces with others that support the weight of our votes. The petition I created will begin with Weber State University students, and will spread to surrounding communities, protecting our votes and history.

Because of the Great Compromise in 1787, the Electoral College was created by our Founding Fathers and written into Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution of the United States of America. It prevents an absolute nationalism, and protects the individualism and votes of states. It is more fair to those who live in smaller states, allowing their voices to be heard among the super states and their extreme views. The College is not a partisan issue, it shows no favor to the different parties, and abolishing the College would result in the same campaign strategies of battleground states. 

Our ancestors fought for our right to vote and we should use it, knowing that the Electoral College will protect our votes, regardless of where we reside! Sign my petition and join forces with other WSU students who would like to protect the constitution and the weight our votes carry. If attacks on the College grow, we will form a peaceful march at the State Capital in Salt Lake City, advocating our right to vote and have our votes count.
