no it doesn't

I'm not sure why so many people here seem to think that you can't have a democratic vote to make decisions like this in a Republic. This has absolutely nothing to do with whether the US is a Republic or a Democracy. They could get rid of the Electoral College and it wouldn't make the US a pure democracy. Many states already use rules like this in selecting delegates - and amazingly we've still remained a Republic.
