Can someone remind me why in this day and age that thanks to the archaic Electoral College, one elector in California carries just 25% of the weight of an elector in Wyoming? Whatever happened to "one man, one vote"? Many of the reasons for establishing this system are now woefully outdated. Why should a vote count more than another simply because it resides in a different part of the country? Voting is about people and what the EC does is weight votes differently due to land mass. Because people choose to live in some states more than others, they're actually punished via the EC.

The College has become an embarrassment for a country that prior to 2000 was the model for a democratic system.
