I voted for the electoral college - it's a part of the whole checks and balances system.
Why do you think the electoral college contributes to checks & balances?
I always saw it as a way of making some people's votes count more than others. If you live in a swing state, your vote makes a difference. If you live in a red or blue state, your vote is not likely to make a difference at all.
