How Harmful Is The Electoral College?

Satisfactory Essays
People are educated enough to choose a president. People have said that the reason the electoral college was made was because they do not believe that the people are educated enough to make a good vote. Why do we have to be eighteen to vote, if our vote does not even matter? I do not have a problem with the primary voting age to be eighteen, but why does it matter, if our vote is not even counted? Candidates lie just to get into office. Can the electoral college really know whether a candidate is lying, better than the people can?
