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.

Not really. Under the congressional district system, the statewide winner gets the senatorial votes (so in a close election the winner should end up with more EC votes). The House votes by state (each state gets 1 vote). The vote is decided by that state's congressional delegation in the House.
