Does your vote for President count? Print Email
Yes and no.  The Electoral College was created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between having the President elected by Congress or by the people.  Mid December the twelve Washington State Electors will meet in Olympia to cast the vote for president and since Washington is a “winner take all state” the popular vote will determine their vote.  For more information on this consult the National Archives and Records Administration since it is the department in charge of the Electoral College.
