Should We Change Our Method Of Electing a President?
The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Any state’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators.
Most states have a “winner-take-all” system that awards all electors to the winning presidential candidate. However, Maine and Nebraska each have a variation of “proportional representation.”
The question is what method is best for the United States, the Electoral College, Popular vote or possible proportional representation.
