    Sign the petition: End the Electoral College

    Donald Trump has won the presidency after narrowly carrying a few states to put him above 270 electoral votes.

    But according to the latest numbers, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. The game is rigged.

    In other words, we have a similar situation as in 2000—where the candidate who more voters picked did not become president. It is unfair, undemocratic & we must eliminate the Electoral College.

    Eliminating the Electoral College does not even require a constitutional amendment. An effort known as The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is an agreement among several U.S. states and the District of Columbia to award all their respective electoral votes to whichever presidential candidate wins the overall popular vote. Once states totaling 270 electoral votes join the compact—which only requires passing state laws— then the next presidential election will be determined the the popular vote, not the Electoral College.

    As of November 9, 2016, ten states and the District of Columbia have signed the compact, totaling 165 electoral votes. So, we are already over 60% of the way there. If we can make this a national issue now, and if Democrats can do well at the state level in the 2018 midterm elections (which could happen under President Trump), then the winner of 2020 presidential election will be determined by popular vote.

    Sign if you agree: Abolish the Electoral College and determine the winner of presidential elections by popular vote.
