1. What parts of the presidential election process are explicitly established by the Constitution? What parts are not mentioned in the Constitution?
In order to establish a president the founding fathers wrote Article II, section 1, clauses 2 and 3 in the constitution. In Article II,. Section 1 of our constitution, it states specifically the president would be elected by the electoral college. Electoral college takes place when the electors from each state which equals the number of representatives of that state. In short, for each electoral vote in this example Arizona, which would allocate 11 electoral votes. This means that come election day, the state of Arizona no matter how many people vote for one candidate (popular vote), the electoral votes of 11 take the win for that candidate. In all, the candidate's must get a total of 270 electoral votes out of the 538 electoral votes available. The 270 votes is key to win election
There was no vote by the people established the founding fathers. Most states allow voting by the people however, did you know the states can take that back at anytime they choose. This took place with the 2000 election with George W. Bush and Al gore(Monk, 2003). During this election the hand counting of votes in Florida was determined unnecessary according to the courts. The courts stated that the states had every right to take back the appointed powers of electoral votes at any time in which they did and declared George Bush the winner.
