The US Presidential Election Process
The US President is not elected by direct vote of the citizens; rather, the election process is indirect. First, people vote and elect an electoral college. Here’s a particular note: the ballot paper says the names of the presidential and vice presidential candidates. And according to the rules of each state, the name of the elector may be mentioned, or may not be. People vote for a particular presidential candidate, which means choosing the selectors of that candidate’s party.
The next time the electoral council voted, the people’s choice was to elect the presidential candidate. However, under US federal law, the electoral college is not obliged to vote for the candidate of the people’s choice. That means the elector scan can go outside the party and vote for the opposition candidate. However, in 24 of the 50 states of the United States, such “betrayal” is considered a crime. And in the present era, no elector is seen to vote for anyone other than his party’s candidate. So, the people who vote for the presidential candidate will get all the electoral votes in that state.
How is the election day fixed?
There was no separate day for the first 69 years of US history. The states were organizing their favorite day of voting. But it would have caused chaos. To prevent this chaos, it was decided in 1845 that the first Monday of November will be held on Tuesday, the day after the country’s first vote. There was also a proposal to set Sunday as election day. But that offer was immediately rejected. Because that day, everyone goes to church to participate in weekly prayers. Monday was also thought of. But it was also cancelled. Later it has been fixed that voting will be held on Tuesday. So, this year the election date is fixed for November 3.
