Unless you live in a "battleground, state, no.
For every political office in the country, the victor is determined by popular vote. The only exception is for the most important office in the land, that of president. We all know it was set up this way originally because of the distances involved and lack of technology during the 18th century. But this is the 21st century. The system no longer serves us and should be abolished.
Once again the country that touts itself as the greatest democracy in the world has endured another presidential election using the dumbest and most unfair election system ever devised. We are urged over and over during the weeks leading up to the election to get out and vote, and that every vote counts (meaning matters). But presidential candidates and all political advisers know how the system really works. The voting outcome in all but about 8 major states is well known and will not change regardless of the amount of campaigning conducted in those states. Therefore, the candidates spend almost no money or time in those non battleground states during the campaign. I guess you could say those who don't live in battleground states are the lucky ones. The battleground states are those whose population is large enough to make a difference, and whose outcome is close enough to be contested, and they receive almost all the attention. I can't imagine what it feels like to watch TV in Ohio, PA, or FL. There must be more political commercials than TV programs!
The states that are written off include three of the most populous states in the country; CA, TX and NY. Combined they account for 26 percent of the population. That is considerably more the the combined population of the 8 battleground states.
In those states that are written off, it does not matter what the margin of the anticipated win is. They know they will win or lose the state, so they don't really care if they receive every vote or only win by one vote -- the outcome is the same.
There have been multiple cases where the candidate with the most popular votes has lost the election in the electoral college, but that is not the worst result in my mind. It is that this system has resulted in presidential election campaigns being conducted only in a few select states. If you don't live in one of those states you may as well not vote. None of the candidates care one way or the other, because they have either written you off already, or taken your vote for granted. Either way, your vote does not matter to them. In other words, your vote does not count.
