The Electoral College It seems there are a ton of people here that don't really know how the voting system in America actually works. If you don't really have knowledge of the electoral college and how it works, I suggest reading the above link for some oversight before making remarks like "more people will vote for this candidate so he is going to win." That simply isn't true. This is an interesting topic that has been plagueing my brain since Poli. Sci. class in high school. The electoral college debate has been going on for centuries, and I'm curious as to what people here think about it. I'm kind of up in the air about this issue. On one hand, I feel that yes, every American should have a say in the presidency because we are a democratic nation and I want my vote to count, but on the other hand, I don't think uneducated people should be able to vote, espeically the ones voting for a candidate because he's "cute." So my question to everyone here is this: Should every vote count, including the people who vote just because they can? Or should we elect educated officials to determine who our leader will be (like we do now), in turn going against what many Americans believe to be democracy?
