In regards to your question, the issue which is a hot topic since the Bush/Gore debacle is does an individual’s vote count or not in a country that still uses the Electoral College?
I believe that is what has put many people off of voting because their vote doesn’t really count because the Electoral College is what makes the final decision and they vote however they choose to vote. They do not have to vote the way of their constituients.
So is our vote counted? Is our vote necessary?
