Hillary Clinton Renews Call For Abolition Of US Electoral College

The former US First Lady and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, on Monday renewed her call for the abolition of the country’s Electoral College. 

She made the call in a tweet shortly after voting as an elector alongside her husband and former President Bill Clinton in New York.

“I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and elect our president by the winner of the popular vote, the same as every other office.

“But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” she tweeted.  

It will be recalled that Hilary lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump despite winning the popular votes, President Trump securing 304 electoral vote to Clinton’s 227.

The Clintons were joined by Gov. Andrew Cuomo alongside 26 other electors on Monday who formerly sealed Biden’s victory in the Nov. 3 election in New York.
