    Election Reform

    Elections themselves will be a subject on the ballot this year, as voters in a dozen states face ballot questions on reforming the process. The most controversial by far is Colorado's Amendment 36, which would change the state's system for allocating presidential electoral votes from a winner-take-all system, currently used by 48 states, to a proportional system. If it passes, the amendment would take immediate effect with this year's presidential election. Another controversial election issue is on the ballot in Arizona-it would require people registering to vote to prove their U.S. citizenship.

    Since it would take effect this year, and it is a close election, well who knows what could happen

    Like "term limits", unless EVERYONE AGREES on a Federal level, it is counter-productive for individual states to do it.

    And then we might as well become a democracy and just elect the President by popular vote and can the whole electoral college process.

    (That is NOT my choice, just the logical conclusion of the issue)
