Wednesday on the Senate floor, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) discussed her legislation to amend the Constitution and abolish the Electoral College because she explained, it is a “system where the winner can lose.” Boxer said, “I rise today to discuss legislation I introduced to eliminate the Electoral College and ensure that the candidate who wins the most votes will be elected president. Now, clearly this has nothing to do with this past election. There are recounts going on. We’ll see where that goes. but the bottom line is, this looks to the future. And I want to say something. The presidency is the only office in America where the candidate who wins the most votes can still lose the election. There isn’t any elected office in the nation, be it county level, city level, state level, national level, where this is true. A person gets more votes, one person one vote, majority wins. Not true in the presidential election.” She added, “You know, a lot of people came up to me after this election and said, you know, I don’t feel my voice is heard, period, and this is one of the reasons. Well, make your voice heard on either
