Transcript:

 

Every four years, Americans who are 18 or older have a big responsibility. Our votes decide who becomes the president of the United States. Unfortunately, the US election system isn't that simple. This is Electing a US President in Plain English.

 

It's easy to imagine every US citizen's vote being counted together on Election Day. But this is not the case. US elections are not decided by the total or popular vote, but individual states. Let me explain.

 

It starts with your vote. On Election Day, you'll vote for president and their vice president. You get one choice. Then, all the votes in your state are counted. The candidate with the most state-wide votes becomes the candidate your state supports for president. This happens across the country until each state has selected their candidate.

 

We end up with most of the 50 states and the District of Columbia voting to support one candidate each. But there is a problem. We can't elect a president by just counting up the choices of these states - US states are different.

 

Consider this: California has about 36 million people, Kansas has less than three million. We need a way for California's choice to have more influence on the election because the state has more people. The question becomes - how do we make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election?

 

Well, we need a way to account for the population of each state.

 

As an example, let's consider my home state of North Carolina. Like every state, it is divided up into congressional districts that are based on population. North Carolina has 13 districts, California has 53 and Kansas has four. When it comes to a state's influence on the election, the number of districts matters most. More population equals more districts equals more influence.

 

The influence a state has in the election is measured by the number of "electors". This number comes from the number of districts in a state plus the number of US senators which is always two. North Carolina has 15 electors while California has 55.

 

When a candidate wins the voting in a state they win that state's number of electors. That's why big, populous states can be so important to candidates - their electors add up quickly. And the number of electors is what really matters. Here's why.

 

If you add up the electors of all 50 states and the District of Columbia, there are 538 in total. The candidates' goal on Election Day is to win the majority of 538, or 270 electors. Once a candidate wins enough states to reach the 270 majority, they have won the election and become the president-elect. Yay!!

 

So, let's recap. Your vote helps your state choose a single candidate. That candidate receives all the electors from your state. The candidate who can win enough states to reach 270 total electors wins the national election and becomes the president-elect.

 

Then, on the following January 20th, the president-elect is sworn in as the next president of the United States.

 

And it all starts with your vote, make it count.

We need aware the California’s choice has more influence on the election, because the state has more people. The question is how do we make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election. Well, we need aware to the count of population of each state. As an example, Let’s consider my own state …. ,like every state, it is divided up in a constructional districts based on population. North … has 13 districts, California has 53, and Kansas has 4, when they comes to the influence on the election, the number of districts matters most.

When a canadate wins the voting of a state, they win the state number of electors. That’s why big popular states can be so important to canadates. Their electors add up quickly.

Let me explain. It starts from your vote. On Election Day, your vote for president and the advised president. You get one choice. Then, all the votes in your state are accounted. The candidate with the most state wide votes became the candidate your state support for president.
This happens across the country and tells each state have elected their candidate.
We end up with most of the states and except for Columbia voting for just one candidate for each.
But there is a problem. We can’t elect the president by just counting up the choices of these states. The US states are different. Consider this, California has about thirty-six million people, Census has less than three million. We need a way for California’s choice to have more influence for the election because the state has more people.
The question becomes, how do you make sure  each state has a right amount of influence on the election? Well, we need a way to account for the population of each state. As an example, let’s consider my hometown of north *. Like every state, it is divided into different * districts that based on the population. North * has thirteen districts, California has fifty-three and Census has four. When it comes to a state’s influence on the election, the number of districts matters most. More population equals more districts equals more influence.
The influence a state has on election is measured by the numbers of the electors. This number comes from the number of districts in a state, plus the number of the US senators which is always two. North * has fifteen electors while California has fifty-five.
When a candidate wins the voting in a state, they win that state’s number elector. That’s why big popular states can be so important to candidates.
The electors add up quickly and the number of electors is what really matters. Here’s why. If you add the electors all fifty states and Columbia, there are five hundred and thirty-eight in total. The candidates’ goal on election day is to win the majority of five hundred and fifty-eight, or two hundred and seventy electors. Once a candidate wins enough states to reach the two hundred and seventy majority, they have won the election and become the president elect. Yeah!
So, let’s recap. Your vote helps your state choose a single candidate. That candidate receives all electors from your state.

When a candidate wins the voting of a state, they win that state’s number of electors. That’s why big populous states can be so important to candidates. Their electors add up quickly. And the number of electors is what really matters.

Here is why: if you add up the electors of all 50 states and the district of Columbia, there are 538 in total. The candidates’ goal on the Election Day is to win the majority of 538, or 270 electors, once the candidate wins enough states, to reach the 270 majority, they have won the election and become the president elected.

Yeah~So, let’s recap. Your vote help your state choose a single candidate. That candidate receives all the electors from your state. The candidate who can win enough states to reach to 270 total electors wins the national election and become the president elect. Then on the following January 20th, the President elected is sworn in as the next president of the United States. And it all starts with your vote. Make it count.

Every four years, Americans who are 18 or older have a big responsibility.Our votes decide who becomes the president of the United States.Unfortunately,the U.S. Election system isn't that simple.This is electing a U.S. President in plain English.
It's easy to imagine every US citizen's votes being counted together on election day.But this is not the case. US elections are not decided by the total or popular vote,but individual states.Let me explain.
It start with your vote.On an election day,you vote for president and vice president.You get one choice.TThen,all the votes in your state accounted.The candidate with the most state-wide votes becomes the candidate your state supports for candidate.
This happens across the country,until each state has selected their candidate.We end up with most of the 50 states and except for Columbia voting to support one candidate each.
But there's a problem.We can't elect a president by counting up the choices of these states,US states are different.Consider this,California has about 36 million people,Kensas has less than 3 million.We need a way for California's choice to have more influence on the election because the state has more people.The question becomes:How do we make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election?
Well,we need a way to account for the population of each state.As an example,let's consider my homestate of North Carolina.Like every state,it is divided up in the congressional districts that are based on population.North Carolina has 13 districts,California has 53,and Kensas has 4.
When it comes to states influence on the election, the number of districts matters most.More population equals more districts,equals more influence.The influence a state has in the election is measured by the number of "electors”。This number comes from the districts in a state plus the number of US senators which is always two.North Carolina has 15 electors,while California has 55.
When a candidate wins the voting in a state,they win that state's number of electors.That's why big populous states can be so important to candidates,their electors add up quickly.And the number of electors is what really matters.Here's why.
If you add the electors all 55 states in the state of Columbia,their are 538 in total.The candidate's goal on an Election Day is to win the majority of 538,or 270 electors.Once a candidate wins enough states to raise the 270 majority,they have won the election and become the president-elect.
So,let's recap.Your vote helps your state choose a single candidate.That candidate receives all the electors from your state.The candidate who can win enough states the raise 270 total electors wins the national election and becomes the president elect.
Then,on the following January 20th,the president elect is sworn in as the next President of the United States.And it all start with your vote.Make it count.

We can’t elect a president by just counting at the choices of these states. US states are different.


Consider this, California has about 36 million people, Kansas has less than 3 million. We need to weigh for California’s choice to have more influence on the election, because the state has more people. The question becomes, how do we make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election?

it started with year vote,on a election date,year vote for president and their vice president,you get one choice.then all the votes in year states encountered.the candidate with the most state-wide votes becomes the candidate your state supports for president.this happens across the country until each state has selected their candidate.we end up with the most of the 50 states and distriction of columbia voted to support one candidate each.
but there's a problem,we cant elect a president by just counting the votes of each state.us states are different.consider this,california has about 36 millions people,kanses has less than 3 millions,we need to weigh for california's choice to have more influence on the eletion because the state has more people.
the question becomes.how do we make sure that each state has right the influence on the election?well,we need to weigh to account for the population of each state.as an example,let's consider my home state of north calionar.like many other state,it is divided up in the congrational district that based on the population.north calionar has 13 districts,california has 53,and kanses has 4,when it comes to the election on the influention,the numver of district matters most.more population equals more district equals more influence.the influence the state has the election is measured by the number of the electors.this number comes from the district from a state plus the number of the us senators with is always 2.north calionar has 15 electors,while california has 55.when the candidate ends up voting
our state,they won that state number of electors,that's why big poplutaion states can be so popular to candidates.their electors add up quickly,and the numbers of electors is what really matters.
here's why,if you add the electors of all the 50 states in the district of colunbia,there are 538 in total.the candidates go on the election day is to win the majority of 538,for 270 electors.once the candidates to reach the 270 majority,they are one in the election,yea~~~
so let's recount.your vote help your state to choose a single candidate,that candidate collect all the votes of your state,the candidate who can win out the states should reach 270 total electors,wins the national election and becomes the president elect.then on the following january 20th,the president elect is swam as the next president in the united states.

Every 4 years, Americans who are 18 or older have a big responsibility. Our votes decide who becomes the next president of the United States. Unfortunately, the US selection system isn’t that simple. This is electing a US president in plain English.

It’s easy to imagine every US citizen’s vote being counted together on Election Day. But this is not the case. US elections are not decided by the total or popular vote, but individual states.

Let me explain. It starts with your vote. On Election Day, you’ll vote for president and their vice president. You get one choice. Then all the votes in your state are counted. The candidate with a most statewide votes becomes the candidate your state supports for president. This happens across the country until each state has selected their candidate.

We end up with most of the50 states and the District of Columbia voting to support one candidate each. But there’s a problem. We can’t elect a president by just counting on the choices of these states. US states are different.

Consider this, California has about 36 million people, Kansas has less than 3 million. We need to weigh for California’s choice to have more influence on the election, because the state has more people. The question becomes, how do we make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election?

Well, we need a way to account for the population of each state. As an example, let’s consider my home state of North Carolina, like every state, it is divided up in a Congressional districts that are based on population. North Carolina has 13 districts, California has 53, and Kansas has 4, when it comes to a state’s influence on the election, the number of districts matters most. More population equals more districts, equals more influence.

The influence a state has in the election is measured by the number of “electors”. This number comes from the number of districts in the state, plus the number of US senators, which is always 2. North Carolina has 15 electors, while California has 55. When a candidate wins the voting in a state, they win that state’s number of electors. That’s why big populous states can be so important to candidates. Their electors add up quickly. And the number of electors is what really matters.

Here is why. If you add up the electors of all 50 states and the District of Columbia, there are 538 in total. The candidates’ goal on Election Day is to win the majority of 538, or 270 electors, once a candidate wins enough states to reach the 270 majority, they have won the election and become the president-elect.

Yeah~So, let’s recap. Your vote helps your state choose a single candidate. That candidate receives all the electors from your state. The candidate who can win enough states to reach 270 total electors wins the national election and becomes the president-elect. Then on the following January 20th, the president-elect is sworn in as the next president of United States. And it all starts with your vote. Make it count.

Every four years, Americans who are 18 or older have a big responsibility. Our votes decide who becomes the president of the US. Unfortunately, the US election system isn't that simple. This is Electing a US President in Plain English.



It is easy to imagine every US citizen's vote being counted together on Election Day. But this is not the case. US elections are not decided by the total of popular vote, but individual states.



Let me explain.



It starts with your vote. On Election Day, you’ll vote for president and their vice president. You get one choice. Then all the votes in your state are counted. The candidate with the most state-wide votes becomes the candidate your state supports for president. This happens across the country until each state has elected their candidate.



We end up with most of the 50 states and the District of Columbia voting to support one candidate each. But there's a problem, we can't elect president by just counting up the choices of these states. US states are different.



Consider this: California has about 36 million people. Kansas has less than 3 million. We need a way for California's choice to have more influence on the election because the state has more people. The question comes, how do you make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election?



Well, we need a way to account for the population of each state.



As an example, let's consider my home state of North Carolina. Like every state, it is divided into a congressional districts that are based on population. North Carolina has 13 districts, California has 53 and Kansas has 4. When it comes to a state’s influence on the election, the number of districts matters
most. More population equals more districts equals more influence.



The influence a state has in the election is measured by the number of “electors”.



This number comes from the number of districts in a state plus the number of US senators, which is always two. North Carolina has 15 electors while California has 55.



When a candidate wins the voting in a state they win their states' number of electors. That's why big populous states can be so important to candidates- their electors add up quickly. And number of electors is what really matters.



Here's why.



If you add up the electors of all 50 states and the District of Columbia, there are 538 in total. The candidates’ goal on Election Day is to win the majority of 538, or 270 electors. Once a candidate wins another states to reach the 270 majority, they have won the election and become the president-elect. Yea!



So let's recap. Your vote helps your state choose a single candidate. That candidate receives all the electors from your state. The candidate who can win another states to reach 270 total electors wins the national election and becomes the president-elect.




Then, on the following January 20th, the president-elect is sworn in as the next president of the US.



And it all starts with your vote, make it count.

As an example, Let’s consider my own state north kalian, likeevery state, it is divided up in a congressional districts that based onpopulation. North kalian has 13 districts, Californiahas 53, and Kansashas 4, when they comes to the influence on the election, the number ofdistricts matters most. More population equals more districts, equals moreinfluence. The influence a state has in the election is measured by the numberof electors. This number comes to numbers of districts in the state, plus thenumber of US senators, which is always 2. North kalian has 15 electors, while California has 55. Whena candidate wins the voting of a state, they win the state number of electors.That’s why big popular states can be so important to candidates. Their electorsadd up quickly. And the number of electors is what really matters. Here is whyif you add up the electors of all 50 states and the districts of Columbia, there are 538 in total. The candidates’ goal on the ElectionDay is to win the majority of 538, or 270 electors, once a candidate winsenough states, to reach the 270 majority, they have won the election and becomethe president elected. Yeah~
So, let’s recap. Your vote help your statechooses a single candidate, that candidate receives all the elector from yourstate. The candidate who can win enough states to reach 270 total electors winsthe national election and become the president elected. Then on the followingJanuary 20th, the president elected is swearing as the next president of United States.And all starts with your vote. Make it count.

Every four years, Americans who are 18 or older have a big responsibility. Our votes decide who becomes the president of the United States. Unfortunately, the US election system isn't that simple. This is Electing a US President in Plain English.  



It's easy to imagine every US citizen's vote being counted together on Election Day. But this is not the case. US elections are not decided by the total or popular vote, but individual states. Let me explain.



It starts with your vote. On Election Day, you'll vote for president and their vice president. You get one choice. Then, all the votes in your state are counted. The candidate with the most state-wide votes becomes the candidate your state supports for president. This happens across the country until each state has selected their candidate.



We end up with most of the 50 states and the District of Columbia voting to support one candidate each. But there is a problem. We can't elect a president by just counting up the choices of these states - US states are different.



Consider this: California has about 36 million people, Kansas has less than three million. We need a way for California's choice to have more influence on the election because the state has more people. The question becomes - how do we make sure each state has the right amount of influence on the election?



Well, we need a way to account for the population of each state.



As an example, let's consider my home state of North Carolina. Like every state, it is divided up into congressional districts that are based on population. North Carolina has 13 districts, California has 53 and Kansas has four. When it comes to a state's influence on the election, the number of districts matters most. More population equals more districts equals more influence.



The influence a state has in the election is measured by the number of "electors". This number comes from the number of districts in a state plus the number of US senators which is always two. North Carolina has 15 electors while California has 55.



When a candidate wins the voting in a state they win that state's number of electors. That's why big, populous states can be so important to candidates - their electors add up quickly. And the number of electors is what really matters. Here's why.



If you add up the electors of all 50 states and the District of Columbia, there are 538 in total. The candidates' goal on Election Day is to win the majority of 538, or 270 electors. Once a candidate wins enough states to reach the 270 majority, they have won the election and become the president-elect. Yeah!!



So, let's recap. Your vote helps your state choose a single candidate. That candidate receives all the electors from your state. The candidate who can win enough states to reach 270 total electors wins the national election and becomes the president-elect.



Then, on the following January 20th, the president-elect is sworn in as the next president of the United States.



And it all starts with your vote, make it count.
