They already do control the PRESIDENTIAL elections with the electoral college.
Electoral college votes are determined by the number of seats that are held in congress, house and senate. Therefore each state is guaranteed at least 3 electoral votes (1 house 2 senate). The rest are distributed like HOUSE congressional seats dependent upon the population of a state.
Where those electoral votes comes from is determined by the size of the states population. So a state like CA that controls a LARGE electoral college vote count, could with a very low voter turnout actually send all it’s ELECTORAL votes to one candidate, even though the low turnout population count was really close.
Having your vote actually count sounds like a damn good idea, then when a state like MN which has HUGE voter turn out you will get actual real representation as voted by the people, with it’s number of votes.
CA has low turn out only those that turn out get their votes to count. Because a few extra got out and voted D instead of R shouldn’t mean that R lost ALL the state’s Electoral votes to D
If we let this pass…….it is another step toward ELIMINATING our CONSTITUTION!!!!
Think about what would mean!!!!!
Subject: If this passes the states with the largest populations – NY, CA, NJ will control all the elections__(scp1)
Call or write your STATE House and Senate and tell them NO WAY. The electoral college was put in place so EVERY state would have a say in elections, not just overpopulated ones.
