Synopsis: The current U.S. presidential election process, known as the Electoral College, needs to be modified. Only a minority of our nation’s voters are actually represented in the Electoral College in its current form. Because of the low voter representation, our citizens are not encouraged to vote; a state of apathy is prevalent in the very process designed to choose our nation’s leader. Voters are discouraged and our democracy suffers. Something must change! Equal Voice Voting is a new presidential election method that modifies the Electoral College. Equal Voice Voting gives both the popular as well as the geographic representation needed to allow everyone an equal voice in our presidential elections. It eliminates the winner-take-all approach, giving every political party an opportunity to be represented in every presidential election. This book discusses other voting alternatives, such as the National Popular Voting bill and the option of relying on voting by congressional districts. This book shows how neither would improve voter representation and how voter apathy could still not improve. The Equal Voice Voting method is fully explained, including the simple math used to translate every state’s popular vote into electoral votes. The method is simple and can foster greater voter turn-out because every voter can realize their vote counts! In fact, the Equal Voice Voting method gives good reason for every political party to rally their members to make their voices heard! The presidential elections from 1980 through 2012 are examined to show the lack of voter representation that was experienced during these nine elections using our current system. Those presidential elections are also compared to show what might have happened if Equal Voice Voting had been used. Media reporting is also considered. Four “what-if” scenarios are examined to show how the media could not rush to a conclusion of which candidate carried a given state during a presidential election if Equal Voice Voting were used. The four states span the four time zones as they collect and count their votes, revealing how final conclusions about candidate wins/losses cannot be determined prematurely. This book is intended to foster positive discussions around this important issue. Readers can use it as a resource to see how our presidential election history in recent elections has disenfranchised our voters. Readers can use it to see there is a better and simple way to modify our current Electoral College without the need to amend our Constitution. Readers can realize that a more representative government for our presidential elections is possible. Equal Voice Voting is for every voter in the United States. Everyone deserves to have their voices heard.
