If it's so great, why don't we do it a state level? Or for other Federal positions, like US Senators or Representatives?

You as an individual have no right to an Electoral vote. It is a question of accumulated votes.

Familiarize yourself with your voting system.

In democracy you win some and you lose some, that's why it is called democracy.

1) Depending on which state you live in, your electors may already be for Hillary. 2) Electors represent the popular vote in your state. Period. 3) This election is over.

The peaceful transition of power is both essential and one of the many hallmarks of our great nation.
