To become president there are many things that are involved. There are a total of 538 electoral votes. There are 435 from the house representatives, 100 from the senitors, and 3 from the district of Columbia. Therfore, at least 270 votes are needed to ecome president .
The electors from each of those states are all apart of the Electoral College. This was created by our founding fathers because they didn't trust the people to elect fully. It was also a compromise on how to elect the president. The number of each electoral votes is based on that states population. The bad things about the system is that they risk the chance of electing a president tht didn't win the majority of the popular vote. Lastly, The "winner takes all system" is used in the election if a canidatee receives 1 more vote than the other in a state, so they would take all the votes from that state.
