There are a total of 538 electors in the Electoral College,with the number from each state based on its population size A state has one elector for each of its members of the House of Representatives and one for each of the state’s two senators California — the most populous state — therefore has 55 electors Texas has 38 and New York and Florida have 29 each At the other end of the spectrum lightly populated Alaska Delaware Vermont and Wyoming have only three electors each as does the District of Columbia The overall winner must take half of that plus one — or 270 electoral votes Power to the states Electors are chosen by each party and typically are party insiders who can be trusted to vote for their candidate Members of Congress can’t be electors by law An elector has only one duty — to elect a president While it may seem like a complicated system the Electoral College was created by the 12th Amendment of the Constitution to empower the role of individual states "It’s the states that decide who the President is and not the general population as a whole" says Miriam Vincent a staff attorney at the National Archives which acts as a liaison between the states and Congress during the electoral college process 19 December —The real election day By law the electors must meet on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December This year that’s 19 December On that day they gather in their respective states to cast votes for President and Vice-President of the United States In almost every state the winner of the state’s popular vote gets all of the state’s electors Maine and Nebraska are exceptions where two electors are chosen by popular state-wide vote and the remainder are chosen according to the popular vote in each congressional district The winner-takes-all system in the states makes it extremely hard for a third-party candidate to prevail although they can still have critical impacts on certain states and therefore on the national result There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the electors are required to vote for a particular candidate and state laws vary But according to the National Archives 99 percent of electors through US history have voted for their party’s candidate and none of the dissenters — known as "faithless electors" — has ever changed the result of an election Once the votes have taken place each state sends its results to Washington where they are received by the Senate and the National Archives Swing states Some states historically support the Democratic candidate election after election while others are just as resolutely Republican Candidates thus concentrate their efforts on about a dozen states prone to shift back and forth between the parties often determining the final result The most important of these are the "battleground" or "swing" states with the largest number of electors like Florida (29) Pennsylvania (20) and Ohio (18) Elsewhere on the ballot From 3November onwards Americans have started voting for every one of the 435 members of the House of Representatives (who serve two-year terms) and for 34 of the 100 senators (who serve for six years) They also will be choosing governors in 12 states and will be casting votes in a multitude of referenda and local elections Congress does a final count Once the electoral ballot votes are received they are counted in a joint session of Congress By law this takes place on 6 January On that day senators assemble at 12:30 pm and walk together to the House chamber They are led by two Senate pages carrying mahogany boxes that contain the electoral vote certificates sent by the states The House session is presided over by the current Vice-President Occasionally it’s an awkward situation as when Vice-President Al Gore presided over the counting in the 2000 presidential election he lost to Republican George W Bush At the session the votes are examined tallied and handed to the Vice-President who announces the results What if it’s a tie If no presidential candidate receives 270 or more electoral votes in the count the 12th Amendment directs the House to decide the presidential election Each state’s House delegation has one vote and must pick from the top three candidates who received the most electoral votes The Senate would use a similar process to pick the vice-president Is the system outdated Over the years there have been calls to do away with or reform the complex Electoral College especially after the 2000 election when Gore won the popular vote but lost to Bush who had more electoral votes John Hudak a fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution says most people want the person who wins the popular vote to become the president But reform wouldn’t be easy because it would require an amendment to the Constitution that would have to be ratified by three-fourths of states Before 2000 the most recent time a candidate lost despite winning the popular vote was in 1888 "2000 was a really incredible exception" Hudak says "Generally the Electoral College reflects the popular will" With inputs from AP and AFP Written by Sumegha Gulati | Delhi | Updated: June 5 2014 1:26 am Related News The Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) has approached a city court for rehabilitation and discharge of a 45-year-old schizophrenic patient whose ex-husband and daughter have refused to take her home The woman was admitted to IHBAS four years ago after she was found living with the body of her mother in a locked house Activist Sreerupa Chaudhary who rescued the woman from South Delhi’s Saket in September 2010 said “A passerby noticed a foul smell emanating from the house and alerted police Subsequently we were informed and it was with great difficulty that we got her out of the house She was admitted to IHBAS in a state of great distress and diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia” While IHBAS has now said the woman has recovered and is ready to be discharged the woman’s ex-husband and daughter are reportedly unwilling to take her to their home In a petition last year the woman’s daughter told the court that she did not want her mother to be rehabilitated in a “family setting” and preferred that she be put in a shelter home in Delhi She however told the court that she was willing to be the “guardian and manager of her (the patient’s) properties and assets” Opposing the move IHBAS said the patient must be rehabilitated in a “community or family setting” The woman too expressed a desire to go home “For two years IHBAS has made efforts to rehabilitate the patient but her family has shown minimal interest She needs a community setting to be healed Moreover the economic rights of the patient also need to be taken care of” IHBAS Director Dr Nimesh Desai said “We do not want her to be neglected Let there be a good monitoring system for the patient with court-appointed officials policemen NGO workers and doctors collaborating to ensure her safety IHBAS will extend all help needed” he said The woman’s daughter has suggested that her mother be placed with the HC Raheja Institute in Delhi after discharge However an inspection team constituted by the State Mental Health Authority examined the facilities at the institute and found that the authorities did not even have a licence to run the home Chaudhary also pointed out how the woman’s daughter had chosen a shelter home in Delhi while she herself was living in Bangalore on the grounds that her professional commitments did not allow her to take care of her mother “Living in a shelter home is not the right opportunity for recovering patients A long-term rehabilitation and monitoring plan need to be drawn up jointly by State Mental Health Authority and IHBAS to support her” Chaudhary said “For the past 14 years the woman had no contact with her ex-husband or her daughter Ironically the family who had abandoned her leading to the worsening of her mental condition now seeks powers to manage her assets The court must look into this seriously to ensure no foul play or miscarriage of justice” Chaudhary said For all the latest
