Inspired by Hillary Clinton’s call to abolish the Electoral College, the Progressive Turnout Party has started a petition.
The announcement reads:
Right now, the Electoral College can OVERRULE the will of the American people. It’s undemocratic!
That means that if Trump runs in 2024, he could easily be President AGAIN!
Luckily, Democrats introduced a Constitutional Amendment to ABOLISH the Electoral College for good.
But we need to act fast! We need a massive wave of support to show Americans overwhelmingly support getting rid of the Electoral College.
The Progressive Turnout Party describes itself as “a 100% grassroots-funded organization with a single mission: rallying Democrats to exercise their right to vote” and, “As the largest voter contact organization in the country. Progressive Turnout Project made a huge impact in the 2020 election.”
Their greatest fear is that the 2024 election could turn out to be a repeat of 2016, when Donald Trump was elected based on the number of votes he won in the electoral college–and despite Clinton’s win of the popular vote. The petition continues, “But our work is far from over. Our very democracy is being hijacked by efforts to make voting inaccessible to the many, in service of the few.
