Solving the Electoral College

by Gross, Benjamin R.

Abstract

This thesis estimates the current voting power of each of the voting blocs in the Electoral College. It concludes that the current distribution of power, while significantly improved from the last similar published paper, is still significantly unfair in terms of the one man one vote principle. Since the Electoral College elects the highest authority in the United States, the President, the election should reflect the principle of one man-one vote. An alternative to the Electoral College is presented, based on L.S. Penrose's conclusions on weighted voting, that comes close to solving the issue of one man-one vote while retaining some of the traditions of the Electoral College.
