The members of the Electoral College are the ones who actually vote for the President. Most of the voters don't realize it, but they are voting for someone who will be a member of the Electoral College and who pledges to vote for a particular candidate.

No the popular vote does not decide the president. the reason this is , is because the person to be elected president has to win their parties votes before they can even be a candidate. what really has to happen is they have to count each states electorial votes and the number of democratic or rpublican votes decides the president.


Citizens should vote, because electoral votes are cast based on the what the state votes. If more people of the state vote for the democratic candidate, then the electoral college votes for that candidate so the people do actually have a say in it. The electoral votes just make things easier.A much better reason to vote though is that people fought for the right to vote and many died for it. They did all that so that people in the future would have the privalege to vote. The right to vote shouldn't be taken for granted.

No, the vote for president is called the popular vote and that does not count. When you cast your vote for president, you are actually voting for the electors to vote for the president.
