Mass. Legislature approves plan to bypass Electoral College

Mass. Legislature approves plan to bypass Electoral College
By Martin Finucane, Globe Staff

"The Massachusetts Legislature has approved a new law intended to bypass the Electoral College system and ensure that the winner of the presidential election is determined by the national popular vote."

I have been saying that the Electoral College is no longer of any use. It was needed 200+ years ago, but since the ubiquitous usage of TV, Phone and now the Internet, there is no reason at all to have this extra layer in out electoral system. Now all that is needed is to keep poll results unreported until the very last poll closes and we'll start to see election results that actually reflect what the populous truly wants.
