Trump, the Electoral College and Governing: Is There a “Better” System? How Will Trump Manage the Transition from Candidate to President?

Pursuant to law promulgated by Congress and regulations by the Federal Electronic Election Commission (FEEC) presidential elections will take place as follows:
* Ten days prior to the constitutionally required election date the FEEC will provide each appropriate registered voter, as determined by federal and state law, with a unique identifying code, the voter shall cast his/her ballot online and receive a vote verification code.
* The FEC will declare a winner one hour after the closing of the voting window.
Maybe in a few years, a decade, all voting will be online. Yes, I know the cyber world is capturing our lives, too many of us live online. How many times have you looked over a group of people and most, all, were staring at their phone and tapping away. According to Moore’s Law computing power doubles every two years – change is inexorable.
A friend, only half jokingly, said, “Pretty soon they’ll be stapling a chip into everyone’s earlobe.” A colleague responded, “I’ll never allow them to do that to me.” My friend: “Are you kidding, in six months you’ll be begging for the upgrade.”
How long before artificial intelligence (AI) catches up to human intelligence, then again, is our president-elect the first example?
Voting electronically will make voting easier and quicker; however, will not change the current constitutionally mandated electoral college.
Article II
