Infographic: Americans Versus the Electoral College

In 18th-century America, when there were no formal political party structures and only a few million settlers, the Founding Fathers created a method to elect a president that made the most sense at the time: an indirect decision by the Electoral College, comprised of the most informed individuals from each state.

The primary fear among the system’s critics in this infographic created with GOOD is the possibility electing a president who was not directly chosen by the majority of people.
