As you read previously, America uses a system called the Electoral College to elect their President. In short, the people vote for a slate of electors, who in turn elect the President.

Did you know that in 21 of the 50 states, there are no laws requiring the electors to vote the way the public wanted them to? An elector who doesn’t vote as intended is known as a ‘faithless elector’.

With over 100 of the electoral college votes being in states with no faithless elector laws, it’s still possible that Hillary Clinton could become the first woman President.

It’s just extremely unlikely.

Who would you vote for President?
