Recorder's Notes by Pamela Bacon, Logan County Clerk and Recorder

ELECTION HISTORY INFORMATION:

How is the President really elected and what is the Electoral College?

When our founding fathers were writing the Constitution, they decided they wanted every state to have a role in national elections and did not want to leave it up to Congress or just part of the population consisting of the more populous states. 

So the Founding Fathers came up with a system of “electors” or pre-selected people from each state that ultimately elects the President and Vice President.
