The VERIFY team has received a lot of questions regarding the electoral college, and the voting system across the United States.

Viewer Lois A. wrote to the team and asked: “If the Electoral College determines the President, why do we even vote? Why is [the] popular vote so important?”


THE QUESTION:

Why do we still have people vote if the Electoral College ultimately determines the outcome of the election anyway?



THE ANSWER:

Our votes decide who is in the electoral college, and the electoral college votes to decide who wins the election. Put simply, you’re voting for a representative (elector) who will vote for the candidate you want to win.
