Question about Electoral College
    #3071329 - 08/30/04 11:36 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

From my understanding each state has a number of electorates equal to it's senators plus representatives. The states electoral votes are equal to it's number of electorates.

So I have two questions:

1. If all of a states electoral votes are given to the candidate that has one the majority of the electoral votes for that state how do the electorates decide for whom to vote? Say the majority of the voters in a state vote for the democratic candidate. Do all of the electorates vote for the democratic candidate? Or do they somehow simply make sure the majority of them vote for the democratic candidate?

2. Who are they and how are they appointed? Is there a list of electorates for all the states? Who chooses them? What are their qualifications? What guarantees they will vote based on the public's vote?
