So what’s this “electoral college” thing?

I’m weary of election news, but here I am writing about it again.  This, though, is purely informational.  The two links below will help us understand the electoral college.  If it’s something that doesn’t interest you, trash it.  (This doesn’t count toward my blog-for-the-day.)

The first, by Hillsdale College President Larry Arn, is quite readable.  The second is more like a text book.  If you go for only one, I’d pick the first.  Hope the information helps.  No test.
