    americans, how does the voting process work?

    why does each state have a number?
    what does this number stand for?
    how does the state get the number?
    why is 270 the lucky number?

    In a nut shell...


    You need 270 electoral votes to win.


    Each state has a unique number of electoral votes.


    So the goal is to win the states with the highest number.


    That is the kicker about the voting system here, so someone can get MORE votes but the other person may win cause they won 1 state that had large numbers of electoral votes.

    edit: Each state have a certain amount of electoral votes. The more people live in the state the more you get. Number is based on the population. Cali and NY have a lot. If you reach 270, you win.

    Romney may win more states, but because Cali and NY have too many people, Obama may get more electoral votes.

    this map could be inaccurate

    We don't have a direct democracy, it's not whoever gets the more votes, but whoever gets the most electors. Every state has a number of electors based on their population. Once a states votes are tallied ALL of that state's electors get awarded to the party with more votes in that state. So essentially unless you're in a state can can go either way (Democratic or Republican) your vote won't even matter.

    This system also makes it possible for a candidate with less actual votes to win.

    Actually, they are apportioned based on congressional representation, which mostly correlates to population. 1 vote per roughly 500k people. The senate, of course, has equal representation for every state

    The basics OP (there are alot of caveats and special things that can happen, but these are the basics).

    The United States has 3 branches of Government to separate federal power - executive (president), representative (congress/senate), judicial (supreme court)

    What happens is, each state has 2 senators and a specific number of congress representatives based on population that are directly elected by the people.

    Each state's "number" is the total number of congressmen and senators in there state.

    ---

    For the presidential election, everyone who wants to votes and it is broken down on a state by state basis.

    When a state is won, whether it be 100% to 0 or 51.1% to 49.9%, the winning candidate gets all of the electoral votes (or each state's number).

    The total number of electoral votes available is 538. Thus, 269-269 would be a draw, so 270 is the winning landmark to hit.

    (I won't even get into what happens when there is a tie - but there is a method)
