The Electoral College and Why Your Vote Counts

Electoral College logoBecome a more informed citizen – learn about the Electoral College without all the partisan rhetoric.  The National Archives gives easy-to-understand answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

FiveThirtyEight is another website you don’t want to miss.  “Named after the total number of electors in the Electoral College, statistician Nate Silver rose to fame during the 2008 primary election, when Silver garnered praise for his predictions about the Democratic Primary race. Silver continues to publish his predictions for political races across the United States. Silver does not rely on polling information alone; rather, he incorporates multiple polls and weighs polling data with demographic information that indicates who is likely to vote.” (The Scout Report — Volume 22, Number 42)
