Is the law being passed by Virgiania state Republicans another step towards disenfranchising voters?
They are attempting to award electoral college votes by district rather than a statewide majority. In this system, Romney would have won Virginia with a minority of votes in the last election.
First, they gerry-mandered the districts when it was time for re-districting in 2010. That allowed the Republicans to maintain the House majority with a minority of votes cast overall. Now, this attempt uses the gerrymandered districts to vote for president as well.
Isn’t it past time for the people to take away control of the voting process from the parties? Doing away with the Electoral College would be a great first step on the national level.
