SAN ANTONIO – New lawsuits filed in Texas and three other states on Wednesday are aiming to change the winner-take-all Electoral College system in presidential elections. 

A coalition of law firms led by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and David Boies of Boies Schiller Flexner LLP said that they are challenging the current method states have chosen to select their electors. 

According to a press release, the suits aim is to establish a more democratic system of voting for the president – one that counts each citizen’s vote equally and that creates incentives for candidates to campaign for the votes of all Americans, not just those who live in a few battleground states.
