Overview

Synopsis: The Electoral College always fails to deliver voting results that reflect the will of the people. This book reveals the source of the failure and what can be done to remedy the situation. The remedy, called Equal Voice Voting (EVV), retains the proportional voting process set forth in the Electoral College. It ends the voting disenfranchisement, experienced in every presidential election, which sets aside tens of millions of ballots without representation. EVV, a nonpartisan approach, ensures every vote affects the election results and all viable candidates gain representation. The U.S. Constitution is honored, states retain their independent sovereignty, and the voting process checks and balances are retained - just as the Founding Fathers intended.

All Votes Matter! provides a historical look at the Electoral College, examines its basic principles, and provides the results of an in-depth analysis of 16 presidential elections (1960 - 2020). The book emphasizes how we can secure a fairer and more equal voting representation in our presidential elections. It shows that the state-by-state voting results over those 16 elections would have closely adhered to the popular voting results had EVV been used. EVV is compared to a nationwide popular vote election and the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact approach, showing both would fail to serve our nation well. All Votes Matter! shows how EVV can be realized with neither a U.S. Constitutional amendment nor an interstate compact. All Votes Matter! encourages us to be engaged in presidential elections and make our voting voices make a difference.

Autobiography: Jerry Spriggs, B.A., M.S., is a retired instructional designer, having designed curricula and developed training strategies and materials for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and numerous Fortune 500 corporations. His career stemmed from his interest in game design. How we elect our president via the Electoral College began as a curiosity, grew into a hobby, developed into a passion, and is now a beast of truth he must water and feed every day. Jerry and his wife live in Oregon.

Jerry admits to having not come from a political background: not a politician, not an attorney, not a political science professor, and not strongly active in any political party. That background, he claims, actually gave him an advantage when originating the Equal Voice Voting approach and in writing All Votes Matter! He started with an evaluation of the voting mechanism and a desire to make the process fair and equitable rather than starting from a vantage point to favor any political agenda. Recognizing, too, that most people do not really understand how the Electoral College works, Jerry exercised the lessons learned from a career in training design and development to frame the book as an instructional tool and to present proof that Equal Voice Voting can increase citizen engagement in our presidential elections.
