There are two types of elections in the United States. The electoral college chooses the President. Every other elected position is through the direct popular vote. In this type of election the candidate with the most votes wins.

The U.S. Electoral College system is a system of indirect election. In accordance with Article II of the United States Constitution, electoral votes determine the President and Vice President of the United States. The electors are elected by popular vote in each state and each candidate for elector swears in advance whom he will vote for. The electors from each of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia then cast their electoral votes to elect the President and Vice President of the United States.

Examples of direct elections are elections of the representatives in the U. S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

Eliminate the Electoral College and have the people vote directly for the President as they do for other offices.

Something similar has already been done for the election of Senators, except the people did not even vote for Senator as they do for President. The state Legislatures originally appointed Senators.
