If you aren't old enough to remember Bush v. Gore (serious trivia: for those who've followed California's Prop 8, check out the attorneys in Bush v. Gore and who they represented), don't worry. The debate it highlighted -- should our president be selected by popular vote or the electoral college system -- lives on in the efforts of many states, catalogued by National Popular Vote, to dump the electoral college in favor of the popular vote, and Massachusetts is just the latest state to walk that way.
It is important to know that there are two sets of votes today. The popular vote for a candidate and, in reality, the electoral vote. I hope this post is a waste of time and there is a clear winner in the election. If it is a tight race however then understanding how this electoral process works will be very important. Fancy isn’t quiet sure on the details of the process so let’s clear it up for those that have questions.
A Brief History Lesson:
I am tired of listening to people say their vote doesn't count. That the Electoral College chooses the President no matter what the popular vote is. It is balderdash!
Yes the Electoral College determines the Presidency, but do you really know how that works? Other than what you learned in high school?
