Reader Opinion: Keep the electoral college

Our Founding Fathers were smarter than any current political hacks! If you use only the popular vote New York, Florida, Texas and California would elect every president! Small states would be ignored and have no say.

The local school board operates on a popular vote-only Brainerd and Baxter elects them, not townships! The county board is elected by areas of similar population so they must represent all five areas they are elected from.

Don't mess with our Founding Fathers. Read the Federalist Papers also!
