Low voter turnout is a problem because then the elected candidates are only being elected by a small sampling of society. If the public does not participate on Election Day, then Democracy will not serve the general public. That’s why it is so important to vote, so the general public can be heard, and not just a small sampling of
Many consider the Electoral College’s negative effect on third parties to be a good thing. Maintaining that our current two party systems provides the country with stability. Prevents a victory based solely on urban areas.People who favor the Electoral College claim that the current system prevents a candidate from wining by focusing solely on heavily populated areas. The candidate must take a wider approach. Those are all the advantages of the electoral
A positive attribute is the Electoral Votes allows multiple regions to be in focus, benefiting the entire population. However, a negative of the Electoral College system results in a system in which certain states are ignored in the electoral process, either due to their number of electoral votes or depending on which way their vote swings. In, addition to that issue, the popular vote seems to be not accounted for, as seen in the most recent election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Overall, the Electoral College should be eradicated from the Constitution, mainly because it is not an accurate representation of the peoples of the nation's vote, and voters have access to information to make an educated vote.

This institution, created as a method of compromise during a time long past has persisted in its original form, and we are starting to notice its effects on society, how its design enables it to maintain stability in the presidential election system and give more balanced influence on the federal government to every state. Yet it also has its downfalls, from the “faithless electors” to the misrepresentation of the public, especially 3rd party candidates and minorities. These collectively draw a picture of a system that, as of yet, has not needed to be changed, but may be in the near future. It is versatile enough to change to fit the needs of the people when it is needed to be changed through amendment of the constitution, and ultimately in itself has caused no problems. The problems are side effects of how it has been implemented, but not of the College itself.
The advantages of adopting the doctrine separation of power are; it reduces the risk of power being abused as too much power in one person is dangerous, it helps in mutually reinforcing democracy. It allows different functions to be assigned to those most suited to carry out those functions. There will be no conflicts of interest in exercising role.

A democracy is a system of government that gives the people the power to govern. This can either be done directly, where citizens actively participate in the decision making of the country, or indirectly through elected representatives. The purpose of the democratic process is to protect the interests of all citizens of a country. In order to do so, every citizen in the country needs a medium through which to express his political opinion to defend his interests. This is the role of political parties.
