Finally abolish the outdated Electoral College from American voting system

This petition had 36 supporters

The Electoral College was created to address concerns over mob rule and to satisfy the smaller states that thought they wouldn't be represented by the new federal government. The Founders of the Electoral College thought that having a small, well-informed group to back up the election would be a good idea. However, America is supposed to be a democracy, which means that the popular vote is most representative and democratic, not the electoral vote. The president is serving the people, the government is serving the people, so the vote should represent the people. Sign this petition to finally abolish the electoral college!
