The Electoral system implemented for all states to be able to be fairly represented. Many states do not have large populations like California for example. Each state is appropriated a number of congressional representatives according the state population. Question: if CA has 42 congressional Reps. & Maine has 4 & Rd Island has 6. Would it be fair to pick only on populations whose vote has the largest population? No it would not. If you lived in Ma. & RdIsland wouldn’t you be upset that larger states won every year? I would. That’s why we have the Electoral Process.
