Guest Biography: 

MICHAEL BAER started the online campaign to Abolish the Electoral College on MoveOn.org (https://petitions.moveon.org/sign/abolish-the-electoral-6?source=c.fwd&r_by=4535897).

Abolishing the Electoral College would require an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Michael would like to see presidential elections decided by the popular vote. One person; one vote should determine the one leader who is supposed to answer to all the people of America.

For the first two years, Michael’s petition received only 2,000 signatures.  In the last 10 days, it has received more than a half a million additional signatures.  The petition will be delivered to the President of the United States, and members of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.
