June 02 Debate


Debate Statement: That electoral college should be disbanded, and elections should be done using popular vote.

Q1: Are the reasons why electoral college was created in the first place still relevant?

Q2: Is the popular vote better representative of the mandate than electoral college?

Q3: Does having a popular vote election force candidates to campaign harder and in more states compared to having an electoral college system?


Hint: Do search on the internet, try to understand the topic.
