The electoral college was and is designed to give states with smaller populations a voice in electing the president to represent states and people. A5 one time I felt the electoral college needed to be changed but as I have matured I understand the wisdom. The population is centered in areas. An example is Illinois the north (Chicago area) has a larger population than Southern Illinois and the culture and additives are different. Do the Southern Illinois deserve to not be represented. Wyoming is another example.
