Do the people really vote for president?

What does the original constitution say about voting?

Only that citizens have the right to vote for a US Representative if they are able to vote in the largest house of their state's legislature. People did not have the right to vote, granted by the Constitution, for anything else including Senators and the President/Vice President. Some states did have popular voting for Senators and Presidential Electors at the time, but it was not required. It is still not required for states to allow popular voting for Presidential Electors, however all states practice this.

What are the responsibilities for state senate?

The United States Congress consists of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Both Senators and Representatives are responsible for representing the people of the states they serve. This involves voting and writing bills in the United States Congress. There are, however, some major differences between a United States Senator and a Representative, beginning with voting privileges. For example, a Senator has the privilege of voting on whether or not to confirm the President's judicial nominees; United States Representatives do not have this right or responsibility.


What is controlled participation?

I think it's when it seems like the people of a society have a say in the society/government but really don't. An example would be voting for a president. If controlled participation was in place it didn't matter who you voted for because "said person" will actually become president either way.
