When you vote for President/Vice President, you are not voting directly for either candidates. Instead you are voting for a slate of electors that are committed to one set of candidates. The electors that are victorious on election day will then cast a vote on your behalf for President and Vice President in Albany, in December. This process is called the Electoral College.


For more information, please go to: http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/about.html . It is the only election that is structured this way. Candidates for all other positions in the United States are elected directly by the voters.
