Why is there an electoral college in America?
As an Australian, I have been trying to learn about the American political system. One thing I don’t understand is the electoral college.
How exactly does it work when you vote? Does it mean instead of voting directly for the candidate, you vote for someone who promises to vote for the candidate of you choice?
Seems a bit pointless to me, is there actually a benefit of doing it like this?
