Editorial In the United States, state and local authorities are in charge of voting and the country uses more than a half dozen different voting technologies. As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

EC can be fixed easily

If each state allocated their electors by congressional district (like Maine does), it would pretty much fix the major problem with the EC and would not require a constitutional fix. Winner take all is pretty silly.

Also, most of the recounts (including a big one by multiple news organizations) found Bush did indeed win Florida.

The EC has one big benefit. It typically makes individual voting issues irrelevant. 2000 being the big exception.
