Electoral College

Buster Kellogg Jr. served on the Electoral College in 1988 when George H.W. Bush was elected President of the United States. Buster explained that he was able to serve as a Republican because the Republican party candidate won the popular vote. He always had the privilege of taking one of his children with him to the Electoral College, and the year he was able to serve was the year he took his daughter, Lucy, with him.

The Electoral College is a system set up by the U.S. Government which allows for equal representation of the states in the elections of presidents.

Each state is represented by a specific number of people based on their size.

The Electoral College allows smaller states to have an fair amount of pull in elections as larger states.
