Let’s End Electoral College- Hillary Clinton




A former United States Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton has called for an end to Electoral College, recommending that the president be selected by popular votes. 

Hillary, who was among New York's 29 electors, tweeted this on Monday evening after joining her husband and former United States President, Bill Clinton, to cast ballots at the state capital in New York, as members of the electoral college gathered at statehouses across the country to formally vote for president and vice president.
 
She won the popular vote against incumbent President Donald Trump in 2016, though Trump got more electoral votes.

The chamber broke out in applause after it was announced that the 29 electors had cast their ballots for Joe Biden for President and Kamala Harris for Vice President.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was also among the state’s electors and presided over New York’s electoral college vote.

Hillary tweeted, "I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and select our president by the winner of the popular vote, same as every other office.

"But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris."
