Re: Mandatory Voting
Why thumbs down?
It really is fact that under the electoral college, each vote in a state with a smaller population counts more than a vote in a state with a larger population.
Let's say that 10 people = 1 elector.
In a state with 100 people, there are 10 + 2 = 12 electors (100/10 + 1 for each senator), so each vote = 12/100 = 0.12 electors.
Now we have a state with 400 people. There are (400/10 + 2) 42 electors, so each vote counts (42/400) = 0.105 electors.
