HW Every four year,America * owners has big responsibility.Our votes decide who become the president of United States.Unfortunately the US election system isn't that simple.That is electing in US president in plain English.It's easy to imagine every US citizens votes being counting together on that election day.But this is not the case.US election are no start by the total popular vote but individal states.Let me explain.It start with your vote,on the election day,you vote for the president and the * president.You get one choice.Then all the votes of your state counted.The candidate with the most states votes though become the candidate of state for president.This happen across the country until each stare has select their candidate.We add up with most of the 50 states and Colombia vote to one candidate each.But herer is a problem we can elect our president by just counting the chooses of this states.United States are different,consider this California has about 37 million people,* has less than 3 million.We need a way to for California's choices have more influence,because the state has more people.The question become how do we make sure each states has as much right as effect on the election.Well,we * a way to account from population of each states.That is an example,let's consider my home state Karana.Like every state it is by the *based on population.Karana has 13 district,California has 53 and * has 4.When it comes to the states influence on the election ,the number of district matters most.More population equal more districts equal more effect.The effect a state has in election is measured by the number of the electors.This number comes from the number of district of electors which is always two. North Karana has 15 electors while California has 55.When the candidate wins the voting at the state,they win that state's number of electors.This is why big,popular state can be so important to candidate.The electors add up quickly,and the number of electors is really matters.Here is why,if you add up the candidate all 50 states district Colombia.There are 537 in total,the candidate go on the election day,is to win the majority of the 537 or 270 elections.Once the candidate win enough states to reach the 270 major,they have won the election and become the president elect.Yeah~.So let's recall.Your vote help your state to choose a single candidate.That candidate receive all the electors from your state.The candidate who can win enough states to reach 270 total electors wins the national elections,and become the president elect.Then on the following January 28th, the president elect is * as the next president of the US.And it all start with your vote,make it count. |
