The League of Women Voters state in a May 31 article, “if the candidate you voted for does not get the most votes, your vote will be added to the candidate who did get the most votes in your state and your vote may not matter.”
The flip side in their recommended approach is that if Missouri voters went in favor of a candidate with 80 percent of the state vote, but that person did not get the most popular votes nationwide, then our state voters would be almost entirely disenfranchised.
I doubt 75 percent of Missouri voters would approve of this outcome. Why should we try to rewrite the Constitution because your favored candidate lost an election? Should we change this every few years depending on whose ox needs to be gored?
