The Electorial College can be a little confusing.
Hopefully the following will be of some help.
The Electorial College is only used to elect the President and Vice President. It was designed and written into our original
Each state is assigned electorial votes according to the size of its population. The population of each state is determined by a census taken every 10 years. The last cencus was taken 2000.
A candidate wins all the electorial votes of that state by winning the majority of votes made by the citizens of that state. The looser(s) wins none. It is a state by state winner take all process.
The candidate winning the majority of Electorial Votes nationally,
wins the elections and is our next President.
