Senator Feinstein: Ax the Electoral College
More and more attention is being placed on how we elect our President as states begin to change their rules for awarding electoral votes. The National Popular Vote initiative is gaining momentum as a state-based approached to making every vote equal in presidential elections.
Feinstein made a similar call in 2004, noting that "The Electoral College is an anachronism and the time has come to bring our democracy into the 21st Century."
