Use of Electoral College in Presidential Elections The Electoral College refers to a section of people bestowed with the responsibility to elect the President and his or her assistant in the United States. The members of the college are electors customarily elected by the eligible voters in a popular vote. The public believes that the Electoral College protects the interests of the minority and it also facilitates the two-party system. In addition to that they think that the college directs more powers to the states. However the method of voting raised concerns that the college may divert the will of the majority where it may vote against the candidate with the support of the majority of the people. The system is also complicated thus dissuading the people from voting. For these reasons people have made proposals in the past asking for the abolition of the Electoral affiliations. It is necessary that the nation embraces the abolition proposal for the benefit of the entire population of the United States. Works Cited Jones Ellis Ross Haenfler and Brett Johnson.
