The Electoral College - Pathways, Fall 2020
We decide our Presidential elections not by popular vote, but by the Electoral College. The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Your state’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators.
Who are these electors and what if they don’t vote for who they are supposed to? Can’t we just abandon this “archaic system” and move to a popular vote? This timely talk will provide you with just about everything you want to know about our Electoral College System.
