You only thought you went to the polls November 4th to vote for a President. You were actually voting for an elector, and in all 50 Capitols and the District of Columbia Monday, 538 people are casting the official vote for President and Vice President of the United States. The process dates back to the founding of our country, and the electors don’t necessarily have to follow what voters told them.
Flashback to 1967. Thurgood Marshall became the nation’s first black Supreme Court justice, the Beatles sang about Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band, and it was the last time a sitting Florida Governor got married while in office. Florida’s current bachelor chief executive seems excited about the change in his life as he readies to say "I do" on Friday.
