These seem like simple and fundamental statements, but two of the last three presidents were elected despite losing the popular vote. We must abolish this relic to prevent Donald Trump or anyone like him from taking power again.
Abolish the Electoral College was created to reform an antiquated system that we believe does not adequately represent the will of the people. A system that was created nearly 240 years ago with a compromise to placate an evil system of slavery. We believe that this obviously flawed system of choosing our President and Vice President is long overdue for reform.
We believe that every person’s vote should count, not just those in a select few states. Reform of the Electoral College is long overdue in order to better fit our belief and basic principle that every citizen here in America has a right to have their voice heard and that their vote matters.
Our goal is to build a grassroots army, ready to aggressively advocate for long overdue reform of the electoral college system, that replaces this antiquated system with a more just and democratic method of choosing our nations’ President and Vice President.
It’s no secret Donald Trump only won the 2016 election because of the Electoral College. Despite losing the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, Donald Trump was elected President, and now, once again his racist and disturbing rhetoric is once again stoking the fires of division and tearing our country apart, allowing him to once again, win the Electoral College, but lose the popular vote this November.
It’s up to us, and until we abolish this unjust and antiquated system, extreme candidates like Donald Trump will be able to pull off razor-thin victories in a few swing states despite overwhelming losses in the rest of the country.
In recent years the Electoral College has decided in favor of the last two Republican presidents despite their losing the popular vote – and unless we act fast that trend will continue in November 2020 and beyond.
In 2016 Donald Trump won many of the traditionally swing states by razor thin margins and lost the popular vote by nearly 3 MILLION votes – don’t let him repeat this again!
Sign up today and join us as we work to Abolish the Electoral College and replace it with a system that respects the one person, one vote, every vote matters, principals that our nation deserves!
