|The Electoral College (U.S.)-enacted 1787. This system
allowed southern states a greater say in Presidential
elections with the more populace states in New England. The
south had a mostly rural make up, with large tracts of land
devoted to plantations. Secondly, it took the vote out of the
hands of an uneducated electorate that could not read
and/or did not have access to the information required to
make an informed decision on elections. The Electoral
College was suppose to be phased out after 10 years. But as
usually happens, somebody lost the paperwork. With the
southern states now populated and plantations largely
obsolete, the first justification has been eliminated. And
with the U.S. Literacy rate at 86%, I believe the second
reason for its inception is null and void...The Electoral
College should be replaced by a system of Popular Vote.
The Presidential Elections should be returned to the people.
