EQUAL VOTES

The legal fight against the winner-take-all method of allocating Electoral Votes in presidential elections

The president is elected by the Electoral College. But if you don’t vote for the candidate who wins your state, your vote counts for nothing. We want to challenge this unequal system. We want every vote in America to count, regardless of where in America it comes from. To do this, we will be challenging the Electoral College in court to upend the unfair, undemocratic winner-take-all process of choosing electors.

Our case against winner-take-all:

  • Winner-take-all is nowhere in the Constitution
  • States do not have the right to choose electors in a way that is unconstitutional
  • Several prominent legal scholars believe that winner-take-all violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment
