Overview

Fifty States, Not Six - A Bipartisan Approach to Reforming the Electoral College and Assuring that Every Citizen's Vote Counts by James W. Lucas

The battle lines are drawn! With the election of Donald Trump by a majority of electoral votes even though Hillary Clinton won more popular votes, Democrats have declared war on the Electoral College system of electing our president, and Republicans have leapt to its defense. Democrats want direct popular election of the president, while Republicans want to keep the status quo without change.

Fifty States, Not Six argues that there is another way, a better way to elect our president which preserves beneficial features of the Electoral College system while aligning it more closely with both the national popular vote and our modern concepts of citizens' right to choose their leaders. It also shows how this way is in the partisan political interests of both Republicans and Democrats.

If you are an American who:

• is curious how we came by our current system of electing the President
• is open to considering a proposal to improve that system that accommodates all sides, and
• is in favor of every citizen's vote counting in selecting all of our Nation's leaders, in Congress as well as the presidency,

then this short book may be of interest and use to you.

The Electoral College no longer functions as intended by the Framers, yet direct popular election of our president risks tearing apart our diverse and divided Nation. The Popular Electoral Vote Amendment proposed here offers a better way to choose our leaders, and assure that every citizen's vote counts.
