NEW JERSEY SHOULDN’T BE IGNORED IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

By: Chris Pearson

As a State Legislator I am frustrated when I have to tell constituents their question is actually tackled at the national level. This feeds the idea that politicians only want to pass the buck. When it comes to the ineffective way we elect the President, most immediately think the US Constitution is the rulebook and therefore any change must lie with Congress. Turns out states have the power to update the Electoral College so the person who gets the most votes, wins. Seriously.
