I support abolishing the electoral college for the following reasons:
- I believe in one man/woman–one vote and the electoral college gives greater weight to the votes of people in small states.
- I want my vote to count and be counted. Unless you are fortunate enough to live in a swing state, your vote is largely meaningless.
- In close elections, the electoral college can produce bad results, witness 2000 and 2016 elections. Any system that produces bad results should be scrapped.
- Both sides are tempted to cheat in close elections and historically, the Republicans are better at it than Democrats.
