Kingman Letter: Concerns regarding the presidency

Now that the dust from the Republican primaries has settled I would like to discuss a subject concerning the presidency. Here is my thought: In regards to the presidential election, the use of the Electoral College should be hereby abolished.

The Electoral College discriminates against voters west of the Mississippi due to the small number of delegates awarded to those states excluding California and Texas. If the presidential election was a popularity vote then my vote would mean as much as others who live in higher population states. Since the president and vice president represent the nation as a whole maybe our voice would at least have to be acknowledged by two people in Washington D.C. who might count.

Thank you for your time, and vote this year in the coming elections.
