    When Americans vote, each and every vote is not counted, they are voting for the 538 individuals who make up the Electoral College. Most states award their electoral vote to the candidate who has won the popular vote. Let me emphasize, "Most".

But, as I learn more about politics, and the whole Electoral College pro...

    The Un disputable Necessity for the Electoral College Criticism as to the relevancy of the Electoral College system used in our presidential elections has been around since the implementation of the system into our constitution.

    In order to increase the ease of creating and establishing a federal government with a central figure of office, the framers of the Constitution created the Electoral College.

In this day and age, questions arise a...

    The Electoral College and Proposed Reform Policies Receiving 300,000 more votes than his best opponent, Candidate A was clearly the favorite among the eight million citizens who placed their vote. Much to his and the rest of the country's surprise, however, he was not elected due to a legal ramification that instead awarded the office to Candidate B. Does this sound like a fable taking place in a non-Democratic, unorganized country In fact, the above scenario was the United States Presidential e...
  • Electoral College Vote

    There is a lurking danger in the electoral college. This book demonstrates an out of proportion event occuring when electors vote for someone other than their pledged candidate, causing a constitutional catastrophe. I think having the electoral college is a good idea but needs to be more regulated.
