Electoral College 2016: Everything you need to know before December 19, and after ...


Millions of voters will head to the polls next Tuesday to cast ballots in the 2016 presidential election (and some already have), but the outcome won’t be official for another two months, in January. That’s because the presidential election is decided by the Electoral College, and not the national popular vote.

It’s a process that was established by the Constitution that says a candidate can only be elected president if he or she wins a majority of the 538 electors. Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, therefore, must secure at least 270 electoral votes to win the White House ...

I've never been a political person that's why I've avoided 99% of these political threads but here's my take on the Electoral College, like the failed embarrassment VA it should be dismantled & let the raw numbers of the voters decide who's our next head of state, not some skewed traditional percentage enforced by the Capitol Beltway policymakers, carry on.
