An Act To Amend Title 15 Of The Delaware Code And The Laws Of Delaware Relating To Presidential Electors.

Abstract

In 48 states, the presidential candidate winning the majority of the popular vote is awarded that state’s total electoral votes. However, the U.S. Constitution does not specify how individual states must apportion these votes. The predominant “winner take all method” is deeply flawed in that the outcome is often not an accurate representation of a state’s diversity of opinion. This measure corrects this inequity in Delaware. The proposed reform would divide the state’s three electoral votes equally among its three counties. The popular vote in each would determine how that county’s single electoral vote would be allocated. Such a system would be unique and proportional, better reflecting the will of the individual Delawarean with greater accuracy and independent strength of geographic location for all Delawareans, not just those in the densely populated areas in this nation or State.
