There’s a reason founders created Electoral College

To the editor:

I would like to suggest that Henry Kingsbury go to the library and find out why the founders of our great nation set up the Electoral College the way they did.

The short answer is that it gives the smaller – meaning less populous – states a voice in the electoral process.

If the system changes to majority of votes cast, Maine will never be significant in electing the president.
