(Redirected from Electoral College)

In the United States, the Electoral College is the group of presidential electors that is formed every four years for the sole purpose of voting for the president and vice president. The system proportionally delegates an amount of electors for each state, determined by the size of its congressional delegation, by splitting the amount of electors by the popular vote for each candidate that receives more than 5% of the vote in each state. This system has been in place since the presidency of Huey Long and was implemented in 1934.
