One per­son, one vote

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD - Jean State, Meadville, Pa.

Your ed­i­to­rial re­gard­ing the Elec­toral Col­lege (“Ditch the Elec­toral Col­lege? Yes we can,” Nov. 13) ap­peared in The Meadville (Pa.) Tri­bune. For those of us who ad­vo­cate for elec­tion re­form, a way to rid the coun­try of the ar­chaic col­lege was a re­lief.

With to­day’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions abil­i­ties, there is no rea­son that the pop­u­lar vote can­not be tal­lied in a timely man­ner. Pop­u­lar vote is, in my mind, the only fair means of elect­ing our coun­try’s lead­ers, and I say this know­ing that my party would have lost two re­cent elec­tions.

This is just one re­form that our elec­tion sys­tem needs, but it is a good place to start. Thank you for your very in­for­ma­tive ed­i­to­rial and please stay the course.
