The Electoral College is a Disaster

Letters to the Editor: Yes, young people care. Here’s how to make them vote too

You may have read many letters expressing disappointment at the U.S. and the U.K. electoral process. We recognize the disappointment, but as one of the millions of U.S. citizens on the voter rolls, we agree.

There’s no doubt the vote was stolen. The Electoral College is a disaster.

The Electoral College is a disaster.

We are the only industrialized nation on earth that does not have multi-racial national presidential electors. By leaving it up to the voters, we are ensuring the worst outcomes, such as the one last November, when the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives went to the House of Representatives after the Electoral College.

We must have multi-racial national electors to prevent this from happening again in the future.

We live in a diverse world. People of different races, genders, ethnicities and nationalities, are all capable of making their voices heard.

Yes, young people care. In a recent poll conducted by the Center for American Progress, 73 percent of 18-to-29-year-olds said they were very or somewhat likely to vote in the presidential election this November. And young people are only going to get more involved.

We must listen to them. And when they do, and they do, we must respond.

In May, the U.S. will have the first multi-racial presidential elector in history. In Canada, the same will happen this June.

It’s clear that the Electoral College makes no sense. But we’ve got to do better.

We must demand the Electoral College be eliminated by voting to change the rules to give multi-racial national electors, and abolish all the other outdated rules such as the gerrymandering of congressional districts and even the system of national congressional districts.

The Electoral College is a disaster.
