It’s been said that the American voting system is a relic of the past, with idiosyncratic features due to political negotiations and compromises at the time it was formed. Let’s say in a modern country an election for representatives should be simple: everybody has easy access to a ballot, there’s a clear and non-corrupt ballot counting process, and whoever gets the most votes wins. I’m specifically highlighting the electoral college system by which the popular vote is not a determining factor in the election.
Has anyone outlined a plan given the political mechanism that be for how to reform this voting system?
I mean someone with a reasonable level of expertise outlining a sequence of steps for the most likely way to achieve this reform.
