Election in the US
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a foreign student, who try to understand the US politics and laws.
Now, I think that I understand the most of the politics here. But I am totally lost at the election part.
Firstly, how does election work in the US? How many times Americans vote? Who can they vote for? How many politicians are elected in each case? What this number depends on?
What is the electrolal collage?How does it work? What is the electoral ticket? Who are the electors? How do they vote? How many of them are there?
And the most pointless thing to me...
Why American presidential candidates are eager to win certain states?
I look forward to hearing from you.
