Revisiting an old post from the last Presidential Election about the Electoral College.
UPDATED December 20, 2016: This is a post I originally posted last Presidential election. I thought it would be fitting to re-post it today. I edited it, removing the Electoral College Twitter handle which they seem to have deleted, adding headings, and my current signature block. I also some additional information about why it was established.
In honor of election day, I wanted to post this about the Electoral College. The National Archives holds many interesting things including the records of the Electoral College. You often hear about the Electoral College this time of year, but I think this is a fascinating look at what comes after all the hoopla and the media attention.
Response to YouTube Comment
I first found this about a month ago and someone had commented why can’t we have direct election of Presidents. Here is an edited version of my response.
