What if the world could vote?

I just ran into this, and found it to be quite amusing…and revealing.

The Global Electoral College

The Economist has redrawn the electoral map to give all 195 of the world’s countries (including the United States) a say in the election’s outcome. As in America, each country has been allocated a minimum of three electoral-college votes with extra votes allocated in proportion to population size. With over 6.5 billion people enfranchised, the result is a much larger electoral college of 9,875 votes. But rally your countrymen—a nation must have at least ten individual votes in order to have its electoral-college votes counted.

Come on, Vanuatu. Cast your vote!

(Well, you never know…it may turn out that, aside from those poor shell-shocked Georgians, there is another McCain-loving corner of the world hidden away somewhere in the nether reaches of the Great Southern Ocean…)

  1. Vanuatu will cast its vote but the tribal council will just screw it up. Besides the French will just pay everybody off…
