In the news last week, the state of New York signed the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. I haven't heard about this before; it's an attempt to change how our country elects the President of the United States.
The proposed new system follows the "winner takes all" rule. The candidate that gets the most votes becomes President. Votes are not split up by state, like they are now.
I like this system because it's simpler, and because I dislike how the current system makes 70% of the country irrelevant during Presidential elections. Other people like the proposed system, because it avoids a situation like the one that occurred in 2000, where George Bush became President, even though more people voted for Al Gore.
In order for the new system to go into effect, they need 270 state votes in the electoral college. They are currently at 165. So there's still quite a way to go.
