One candidate in Colorado’s gubernatorial election has called for eliminating its one-person, one-vote approach in favor of a state-level electoral college to weight votes according to population.

Greg Lopez, a Republican candidate for Colorado’s governor, has pitched the idea of using an electoral college-based approach for statewide political office, arguing the current system favors large cities at the expense of more rural counties.

The article goes on to state the following:

“One of the things that I’m going to do, and I’ve already put this plan together, is, as governor, I’m going to introduce a conversation about doing away with the popular vote for statewide elected officials and doing an electoral college vote for statewide elected officials,” Lopez said in audio acquired by 9News in a report published Wednesday.


He said, “I’ve already got the plan in place. The most that any county can get is 11 electoral college votes. The least that a county can get is three.”

Lopez said during a campaign stop this week, “It’s not about one-person, one-vote. It’s about true representation.”

WATCH the report below:

Journalist Kyle Clark tweeted Thursday, “NEW: Republican candidate for Colorado Governor @LopezforCO proposes eliminating one-person one-vote for statewide elections. Lopez’s plan for a state-level electoral college system would heavily favor Republicans. Lopez outlined his proposal to scrap the popular vote during a May 15 campaign stop in rural San Juan County. Lopez said counties should be allotted electoral votes based on turnout percentage, which would concentrate electoral power in small, rural counties.”

“The Lopez campaign did not answer questions about the details of his electoral college proposal. In 2018, @GovofCO Polis defeated @WalkerStapleton by 10%+. Our analysis indicates Lopez’s plan would have created a +28 pt shift to Republicans. Stapleton would have won by 18%. Lopez’s proposed vote weighting system would have given the 2,013 combined voters in Hinsdale, Kiowa and Mineral counties a total of 33 electoral votes, more than double the 14 electoral votes of Denver, Arapahoe and Adams counties’ combined 761,873 voters.”
