Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, called for the elimination of the electoral college during a CNN Town Hall in Jackson, Mississippi on Monday night.

An audience member asked Warren how she would expand voting rights to people who have been incarcerated, strengthen online voter registration, and expand early voting.

“Great question but can I go you one bigger? And that is I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and to make sure that vote gets counted,” Warren said.

Warren then went on to call for the repeal of “every one of the voter suppression laws.”

“And I’ll tell you one more, we need to make sure every vote counts,” Warren said. “I think this is an important point, you know. Come a general election, presidential candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi,” Warren said. “Because we’re not the battleground states. Well, my view is that every vote matters, and the way that we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the electoral college.”

The crowd broke out into a long applause at Warren’s suggestions that America eliminate the electoral college.
