A you may know, we do not directly elect the President and Vice President in the United States, instead we select Presidential Electors. The party that wins the popular vote in your state will then be asked to have their electors vote in the Electoral College in December.
Each state gets one Elector for each Congressional District and one for each US Senator. This is the Electoral College value of your state on election day. It requires 270 Electors to win the election.
Therefore, in order to be on the ballot we have to submit the names of our Electors when we file to be on the ballot. Oft times we need these before we can begin gaining petition signatures.
This is where you can help. It is easy, and it is free......BY SIGNING UP TO BE AN ELECTOR FOR YOUR STATE
This comes with no duties nor any expectation of your time, simply the lending of your name and address where you are registered to vote.
