Dissolve Electoral College

I noticed that 139 years ago Rutherford B. Hayes won the presidential election, even though he lost the popular vote. I have voted in many elections, and am especially disheartened, living in Eastern Washington, at how my vote is always overridden by votes from the other side.

Hence, I have decided to skip voting, until the presidential election is “one man, one vote.” Do away with the Electoral College, like we do in electing members of Congress.

Doesn’t make sense, seeing how my time spent in voting is wasted.
