If we want a government that is for the people, by the people, that makes the people part of the government. Every part of the government has checks and balances to ensure that the power is not concentrated in any one section of the government. The electoral college is one of the few remaining checks on the people that is still in the constitution. I does need an update, congress needs to expand, but we need the electoral college to keep we the people in check. Expand the house and keep the electoral college.
