Electoral Collage
By Akaiya and Rose
"The Electoral College is a process, not a place."
-NARA (National Archives and Records Administration)
What is the Electoral College??
The Electoral College process consists of the selection of the electors, meeting of the electors where they vote for President and Vice President, and the
of the electoral votes by Congress. It is a body of voters who then vote for electors.
e·lec·tor·al col·lege
(in the US) a body of people
representing the states of the US,
who formally cast votes for the
election of the president and vice
(or) a body of electors chosen or
appointed by a larger group.
When does this happen??
This event happens every
years, due to voting for the next president. It starts on a week from Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

What do the voters do?
Voters don't necessarily vote like you think they would. (vote for president). Instead, voters vote for Electors in which
vote for the president. There are currently 538 electors, due to the 435 representatives and 100 senators, plus three additional from the District of Columbia.
Original Plan
1) Individual electors would be elected by citizens on district-by-district basis.
2) Each presidential elector would exercise independent judgment when voting.
3) Candidates would
pair together on the same ticket with assumed placements toward each office of president and vice president.
4) The system as designed would rarely produce a winner, thus sending the election to Congress.
In Conclusion:
The Electoral College is a process, in which voters select Electors, and Electors select the new president and vice president. Electors communicates with the congress and different states to decide who they should select for president and vice president.
