We agree with Al Price (published Nov. 14, 2012) regarding splitting the Electoral College votes proportionately by the number of votes cast. Obama received all of CA’s Electoral votes which means that those of us who voted for Mitt Romney essentially had our votes given to Obama via the Electoral College.

We believe we need to keep the Electoral College but as Mr. Price suggested, we need to dole out the Electoral College votes proportionately which would then maintain the will of the voters. Otherwise why have a two-party system?
