I couldn’t agree more with Bill Snodgrass’s letter. I have been saying for more 30 years we have to get rid of the Electoral College. Having been out of college for over 55 years I have forgotten what I learned in my government classes. What will it take to have it removed from the system?
Every organization I have ever heard about, belonged to, etc. popular vote and it passed; it’s time for our government to do the same and let the people speak.
How do we get our so called “representatives” to hear us and what sort of grassroots effort will it take to get it started. Surely we here in El Dorado County aren’t the only ones who think this way.
