Not necessarily. The twentieth amendment states that the process of electing a president will be through popular vote of citizens of the United States. In a way, the citizens of the United States are the electoral college.

What does the electorical college do?

Originally the electoral college was to allow elections when communication was slow between the states. It was also designed as safety-valve to prevent a "run-away" electorate. The usefullness of this model is currently in debate. George W. Bush won his first term by winning more electoral votes than the popular vote in the country. Problems with popular voting arise as well though. Because states with the highest populations will be where politicians target their campaigns while ignoring lower population states completely. With the electoral model all states still get at minimum 3 electoral votes, which in comparison to california is still small with their 55 votes.
