that’s pretty interesting, T.O., since i read an article that stated that the indirect voting system in the U.S. is unique as compared to others. ? i guess not. i’m still trying to understand it as well. it’s weird because i think the popular vote of the people matters in the sense that at least 27 states, i believe, make electors vote for the same person of the popular vote of the people. i just want young-er people, especially, to understand that the hype surrounding presidential elections is just as important, if not less so, than the NON-HYPE surrounding the vote for their local representatives.
