Best Answer

The electoral college elects the US president. When the people vote for president, they are actually voting for the electors who made up the electoral college and who actually elect the president. The electors pledge to support one particular candidate. The electors never meet as a group but each elector votes in his state capital and the votes are sent to the Senate president. They are counted in a joint session of Congress.
