    Electoral College Votes I’m all for the Electoral College Votes to be used in the determination in the selection of the US President. One might ask WHY I believe that the Founding Fathers felt that the Electoral College was a better solution than the Popular Vote method in determining the winner of the US Presidential election. The United States Electoral College is the mechanism established by the United States Constitution for the election of the president and vice president of the United States by small groups of appointed representatives, electors, from each state and the District of Columbia. In practice, all state legislatures use popular voting to choose a slate of electors who are pledged to vote for a particular party's candidate. Thus, today the president and vice president are effectively chosen through indirect election by the citizens. Each state chooses electors, equal in number to that state's combined total of senators and representatives. There are a total of 538 electors, corresponding to the 435 representatives and 100 senators, plus the three electors for the District of Columbia as provided by the Twenty-third Amendment. No Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.    In summary, as what has been previously stated, the Electoral College is of a grand design to prevent New York state or massive California from tilting elections using ”one man, one vote.” The little man in North Dakota need not even bother to vote. Liberals and Progressives trying to overturn the Republic, but will most surely fail in their attempts. God Bless The USA 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
