One of the seven Iowans who’ll cast Iowa’s electoral votes for Al Gore next week says it may be time for the Electoral College to go. Paulee Lipsman of Des Moines is one of two at-large electors. She says this close election is an indication the Electoral College should be re-examined. Lipsman says it’s disappointing that Gore won the popular vote, but may not win the election. Lipsman says she’ll cast her vote for Gore regardless of what else happens.David Tingwald of Iowa City, a former member of the Democratic State CentralCommittee, is another of the electors, representing Iowa’s First Congressional District. Casting the Second District’s vote will be Lyle Otte (oh-tee) of Decorah, a Luther College professor. The Third District elector is Jeff Heland of Burlington. Emil Pavich (pah-vich) of Council Bluffs, a former state legislator, will cast the Fourth Congressional District vote. John O’Brien of Sioux Center will cast the Fifth Congressional District vote. The other “at-large” elector is Ernest Ricehill of Sioux City, a long-time activist on Native American issues.
