Imagine that Maryland used the same method to elect its governor as the country uses to elect the president. Each of the 24 jurisdictions — 23 counties and Baltimore — would have as many "electoral" votes as its state senators and delegates, and the winning candidate in each of these jurisdictions would receive all its "electoral" votes. Our imaginary "Electoral Junior College" would then select the state's Governor. If that were the way we did things instead of a majority vote, Anthony Brown, not Gov. Larry Hogan, would be running for re-election in 2018. Brown carried the major population centers in the center of the state by small margins, not enough to overcome the large majorities Hogan enjoyed in the less populated counties on the Eastern Shore and in Western Maryland. This "Electoral Junior College" would have resulted in a candidate without a majority of the popular vote becoming governor, leaving disappointed Republicans angry and frustrated. In fact, a similar scheme to thwart the will of the majority, County Unit Voting, was declared unconstitutional in 1962, violating the one-man, one-vote principle.
