Part II: the importance of civic literacy, PR electoral systems and other factors in making democracy work -- especially during this age of misinformation
For the election of POTUS, states should replace single choice plurality voting with ranked choice voting to determine the top-two vote getters. Then winner-take-all Electoral College Vote (ECV) allocation should be replaced with proportional integer ECV allocation to the top-two vote getters. This would incentivize POTUS candidates to aggressively campaign in all states instead of focusing on battleground states. Additionally, supporters of the less dominant major party in a state would not feel like they are wasting their vote. Utilizing RCV in conjunction with proportional award of integer ECVs would reduce the probability of the national popular vote winner losing the election.
