When our founders created the Electoral College, it was to ensure that our elections remain fair. That is why Electoral College was designed—it makes it impossible for one population-dense region of the country to control the outcome of the Presidential election.
However, organizations such as National Popular Vote (NPV) don’t see it that way. They believe that these checks and balances are unnecessary and that each state should give its electoral votes to the candidate who receives the most votes nationally as opposed to who actually wins that state. This would effectively negate the will of each state’s voters, giving all of the national electoral power to states with the highest populations. This is exactly what the founders wanted to avoid.
Even though Massachusetts has already passed NPV’s plan, it’s not too late.
