๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ There are currently 538 electors, and an absolute majority of electoral votesโ€”270 or moreโ€”is required for it to elect the president and vice president.
The electors meet and vote in December and the president is inaugurated in January. 

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 provides that each state shall appoint electors selected in a manner determined by its legislature, and it disqualifies any person holding a federal office, either elected or appointed, from being an elector. โ—๏ธ

The current Electoral College system allows a candidate to win the Presidency while losing the popular vote, an outcome seen as counter to the one person, one vote principle of democracy.

I have voted in 12  ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ presidential elections. I un-registered for the last two. โ—๏ธ

The electors of each state meet in their respective state capital on the first Monday after the second Wednesday of December to cast their votesโ—๏ธ
