Repeal Electoral College

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The electoral college was created by the founding fathers because they did not believe in the common people's ability to make the right, educated decisions. The electors vote on behalf of the states. Considering the time period this was established, with poor rates of literacy and education, it was a great decision. But in this day and age, the electoral college does not make any sense. With near perfect literacy rates, highly educated workforce, and internet to spread ideas, the electoral college's purpose is defeated. Presidential elections should be based on the popular vote just like all the other elections. The results are fair and we should respect that.
