This process is as important as it is usually taken for granted, but with the battle unfolded by Donald Trump, this year the United States achieved this goal in a completely different atmosphere.
Americans voted for the new president on November 3, but the actual election will be held on Monday, December 14, when the college voters will meet. According to the Constitution, voters have the right to elect the head of state. This process is important, but people generally take it for granted. But this year, because of the war launched by the United States, the United States achieved this goal in a completely different political, institutional, and social atmosphere. Donald Trump Question the legitimacy of the election Joe Biden. The Supreme Court rejected Texas’s own support, and Texas’s appeal seems to have ended the game, if it’s not a problem. On Monday, voters should not be surprised to confirm Biden’s victory.
This is the point about the electoral college and the Monday meeting.
How many of them voted- According to the U.S. Constitution, the number of voters in each state is the same as the number of representatives in Congress. The District of Columbia has three voters and is considered a state. There are a total of 538 voters. With the exception of Maine and Nebraska, all states distribute all votes in their districts to the winners of the referendum in that state.
In theory, anyone who wins the general election could lose the election, as in 2000 (George W. Bush won at Al Gore) and 2016, even though Hillary Clinton won three million votes in the general election. Under the circumstances, Trump still won the White House election day. Joe Biden won the popular vote with 306 votes, while Donald Trump won 232 votes.
Who are the great voters? Usually they are officials, politicians or future politicians, long-term representatives of political parties. This year’s eldest daughter is Pete McCloskey, 93 years old. He is a voter of Biden, but a former Republican member of Congress. He ran for president against Richard Nixon in 1972 ( Richard Nixon).
When and where are the big tickets collected? The Electoral College does not meet in one place, but the delegates vote in the capitals of their respective states. Nevada has convened a virtual meeting for its six voters through Zoom, and the others have not yet been designated. Since the constitution does not specify a timetable, each state sets a timetable according to its own decision, and some states do not provide a timetable, so the entire process is scattered throughout the day.
Can they vote against a candidate who wins in the state? Federal law does not require general voters to vote for specific candidates. Instead, sign state-level laws or formal commitments in 32 states and the District of Columbia. In the event of a “changing coat” incident, not all states have imposed sanctions: five states have laws for this, and can be sentenced to a maximum of one year in prison or a fine of $1,000.
In the history of American elections, members of the electoral college voted for candidates, not the candidates they won in their own state. However, this has never changed the outcome of the presidential election. So far, there have been 165 pagan voters in elections over two centuries.
Do you vote after electing college? Decentralized voters vote for the president and vice president respectively.The vote is recorded on the “voting certificate” and “evaluation certificate” (list of presidential candidates), and sent to Congress and the National Archives as a legal document for the presidential election
Congress held a plenary meeting at 1 pm on January 6 to count the votes received. The vice president, this year Mike Pence, is responsible for registering votes in all states in alphabetical order and announcing the names of the winners. By then, the day of the inauguration of the new president (Wednesday, January 20, 2021) is ready, everything is ready, but not all: Donald Trump promised to continue the campaign to legitimize Biden’s election victory.
