I never liked living in states that always voted Republican or always voted Democrat, because if you were voting for the other Presidential candidate in those states, your vote didn’t really matter.
Like Al Gore before her, it looks like Hillary Clinton will win the popular vote while losing the election. Given what we can do with modern technology, I hope the antiquated Electoral College will soon be abolished so every individual’s vote really will matter.
(I don’t write this as a Democrat or Republican. By my count I have voted for four Republican presidential candidates and four or five Democrats. I write it as someone who is an Independent voter in America who likes their vote — and everyone else’s vote — to be meaningful.)
