Letters to the Editor: Why is the Electoral College so important?

The electoral college is relevant because, without it, cities would be dictating the politics of the entire nation.  This is a typical US electoral map by county by county to see who won the 2016 election.







This is the same election results however it is displayed in 3-D.

As you can see, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami as well as other major cities would determine the "nations" politics.  This is what the Framers of the Constitution feared and created a "republic" allowing a voice for all.
