What is an Electoral College and how does it work?
The Electoral College is a bench of 538 delegates, also known as ‘winners all the system’. This is because after popular vote elections the winning party secures all the electoral votes in the state. However, the candidate who wins the election votes voluntarily and not necessarily. Exceptions to this system are Maine and Nebraska where voters cast their votes proportionately.
Media houses seal Joe Biden’s victory but Donald Trump can still win the election.

These 538 electors are made up of 100 US senators, 435 state representatives and the remaining 3 from the District of Columbia. National Conference of State Legislatures Which is a non-associate organization of the legislature, allows state legislatures to devise an independent way to elect their voters. The selection process goes through a rigorous trail of official steps such as state party conferences and state party committees and informal methods such as personal bonds, dinners and loyalty. The deciding factor in electing voters is their undisputed loyalty and service to the party. After a certain party wins a popular election in the state, the first Monday to meet their state capitals on the second Monday of Wednesday to cast their vote for the presidential candidates. This year, the date is 14 December. The first vote is for the President and the second for the Vice President.
And this is where unscrupulous voters can change the will of the people
It is very unlikely for voters to go against a candidate whom they have given their support to. However, this happened once and it is a matter of concern that it happened in 2016 when Donald Trump was contesting against Hillary Clinton. Despite a massive defeat in popular voting, Trump emerged victorious 10 voters tricked or tried. Of these, 8 were Democrat electors who came from Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Minnesota and Washington, while two other Republicans were from Texas.
Is the electorate regulated? Most states unnecessarily charge fines for electoral fines, but there are still some who do not.
Associate Justice Elena Kagan wrote in an opinion, “Both the text of the Constitution and the history of the nation support allowing state voters to support their party’s candidates and the state’s voters.” 32 states and the District of Columbia have laws that prohibit voters from changing their vote in elections. These states are – Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Trump can still win the election
It should be noted that the state which is under Trump’s radar to create chaos in the light of its possible defeat has no penalty for the needless voters. Out of 23,000 electoral votes cast so far for 58 presidential elections, only 90 have been reported to have betrayed their parties and people.
Since such an incident of disloyal voters has been witnessed recently, candidates should be cautious about dishonest voters in this election, which reduces the likelihood of a similar event this time. However, if Trump’s Supreme Court If the bid to win the defeated election fails, he will not refuse to implement the strategy once again. And sadly no one will be able to do anything about it.
