Ever wonder who your state electors actually are? See here...Submitted by tonym on Wed, 02/27/2013 - 00:50
Apparently, everybody who thinks they're voting for president isn't actually doing anything. At the end of the day (in December actually), it's a chosen few that decides who the next president will be. Precisely, how/when they are chosen and how bound they are I'm not sure.
It's from wikipedia. So, who knows. I don't know what I was expecting, but researching some of these names brings up "normal" people. I can't imagine the PTB are just putting the future of their gravy train in the trusting hands of average Joes. But I don't know much about the process. I found it kind of interesting.
