Rhode Island to Consider Abolishing the Electoral College

Another small state seems confused about what kind of presidential election system will best serve it. Rhode Island will consider the Koza anti-Electoral College legislation next Wednesday.

As I wrote earlier this week, small states should be the last to throw out the Electoral College, a system that protects minority interests and small states. https://www.facebook.com/notes/tara-ross/new-hampshire-legislative-committee-may-be-ready-to-abolish-electoral-college/188177294617218

If you live in Rhode Island, contact the House Judiciary Committee and/or your representative to voice your opinion.

The bill is HB 7388.
