Problems within Elections: 


Electoral College:

The electoral college some argue is outdated.  Many argue that one of the issues that arises is faithless electors.  The faithless elector problem refers to the fact that electors are human and may not always be trustworthy.  When the electors meet to vote in December they may choose not to vote for the candidate to which they previously pledged.  If enough electors are faithless they could change the outcome of an election.  Another flaw many argue is that the winner of the popular vote is not guaranteed the presidency.
