Letter: Replace the Electoral College with a popular vote election

Replace the Electoral College with a popular vote election

The Electoral College gives states with fewer people greater weight in selecting the president of the United States. Would it not seem a bit peculiar if, for example, individuals who live in Eden or in Potsdam could cast two votes for the governor of New York because they have fewer people but those who live in Buffalo or in Albany could cast only one?

The president of the United States represents all the people and every person’s vote should count equally and not depend on the state where one lives. It is time to work to abolish the Electoral College and elect our country’s president by direct popular vote.
