Friday Tidbit: 2016 US Presidential Election
- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD, Senior Financial Planner
This technical point caught us by complete surprise.
Under the Constitution of the United States of America, the US Electoral College can prevent a candidate from becoming President if 37 of the 538 members vote in opposition.
Specifically, if 37 of the 306 US Electoral College electors decided not to vote in line with the Republican Party on Monday 19th December 2017, no candidate will have the absolute majority required to be President and the House of Representatives will choose the next President from the three candidates with most US Electoral College votes.
Now that is a Friday Tidbit.
