🇺🇸 There are currently 538 electors, and an absolute majority of electoral votes—270 or more—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. ❗️
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 🇺🇸 presidential elections. I un-registered for the last two. ❗️
