My mom and dad voted for the president yesterday.
You know, when your parents vote, they aren't actually voting for the president.
In the Electoral College system, there are 538 electors in total. Your state's electors depend on its Congress members.
So, when your parents vote for their candidates, they're actually voting for electors.
Those electors vote for the president they think the majority of your state will approve of. 270 votes are needed for a president to win.
What happens if no president wins a majority vote?
Then, the House of Representatives votes for the three most popular candidates.
