241 Words1 Page
The Electoral College consists of elected representatives (electors) that vote for the president and vice president of the United States. Every state has a number of presidential electors that meet in their respective state capitals in December following popular presidential election. The number of presidential electors each state gets depends on the state’s population. The number of electors is exactly the same as the total number of the state’s senators, which is based on population, plus the number of its representatives in congress (Bromwich, 2016). California has the most electoral votes (55) and nine states have the minimum of three votes (Distribution, 2016).
The first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, Election Day takes place.
