Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - March 22, 1956, Yuma, Arizona 0 THE EDITOR'S NOTEBOOK Someone's always saying later than you think In case they're wrong I is now TOO late Too late that is to make any sensible change in our method o electing a President this year We will do it by the College as always A stale is allotted as many votes as it has U.S senators and For example New York state with 2 senators and 43 is allotted 45 votes in the Electoral College Arizona with 2 senators and 2 representatives has only 4 votes When the people vote in ber they vote for Electoral Col- lege members The party which gets the most votes in November gets ALL the Electoral College votes in that state For instance let's say son should win New York state by a very narrow margin maybe just votes Regardless ol the margin enson would get all 45 delegates Then in Arizona Eisenhower might win by votes And get 4 delegates You see what could happen One man could receive the greatest popular vote but get fewer
