Electoral College?

6 Nov

Well, I did my duty as an American citizen and cast my vote.  The line was long but it was worth it to get my say.  However, it’s frustrating when it comes to the presidential vote.  Why in 2012 do we need the Electoral College?  It seems crazy to me that in this day and age we don’t use the popular vote.  We do for all other offices, so why not this one?

Maybe I’m naive or clueless or both, but it seems to me the popular vote should decide the race.  I don’t want someone else to do the deciding for me…can we add this to the voting ballot in the next election?
