It hasn’t gone very far because of security concerns. But many state and local governments store and process voting information in online systems. Are those systems secure against hackers, and what does it mean for the 2020 presidential election? Follow this link:

You’re going to vote for president this year — or are you? Actually, in Florida, you’re going to vote for a committee of 29 people who may or may not vote for the candidate you selected. Those 29 are called electors. But you won’t see them on the ballot, which instead will list the candidates for president and vice president.

Confusing? Well, yes. It’s the Electoral College, established in Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution. (See Pages A15-16 of your textbook.) The third paragraph of Article 2, Section 1 is in italics because it was replaced by the 12th amendment. (See Pages A22-23.) To understand the Electoral College, follow these three links to the National Archives website:
