What made the framers of the Constitution create an “electoral system” for the election of the President and Vice-President? The Electoral College is one of the least understood parts of our government, yet it is one of the most important………

Question: If politicians are elected by citizens by a popular vote, why are Electors needed?
Answer: The answer has to do with the mindset of the framers of the U. S. Constitution. They were concerned with how to balance power between the large and small states for equal representation? They felt the “educated” elector for each state represented the population as a whole.
