KIM: The Electoral College was set up by the U.S. Constitution with 538 electors with the purpose of electing the President and Vice President of the United States. But how are these electors appointed? Each state’s political party has a slate (group) of electors that they choose before the election, this becomes the 538 electors who will watch the election. And how does the President win? The President wins with more than 270 electoral votes. When you go to vote, you will vote for many races — each race is decided by a popular vote except for the President and Vice President. Your vote will “inform” your state electors which political party to select for as President. So, what does this all mean? Your vote DOES count!
