Electoral College

 

The Electoral College, as established in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, determines the winner of the presidential election when electors cast their votes for president and vice-president at their respective state Capitols based upon their state’s election results. The John Birch Society fully supports the Electoral College because it safeguards the rights of the states by guaranteeing that each state’s allotment of electors is equal to the sum of its senators and representatives. This weighting of each state’s influence on presidential elections based on both its constitutional status as a state and its population is key to ensuring that the United States remains a constitutional republic and not a democracy.
