Yes, because the voters don't choose the President and Vice President; they choose the electors who choose the President and Vice President.

A person can be elected President without a majority of electoral votes, too. It happened in 1824. If no candidate has an absolute majority (more than half) of all of the electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President, and they are not required to vote according to the will of the voters or the electoral college. Since 1964, that required minimum number of votes is 270.
