Abolish the Electoral College
skip to sign

The person with the most votes should win. That should be true in every election, but especially for President of the United States.

It's time to abolish the Electoral College.

There would be no more "swing states", ensuring that everyone's vote counts the same. Democrats in red states and Republicans in blue states would no longer feel like their votes are wasted.

In 2000 and 2016, America elected presidents who lost the popular vote. It should never happen again.

Sign the petition and let's build a movement to abolish the Electoral College.
