Presidential electors often confuse those who study the Constitution for the first time. Most people never hear or see the phrase until they vote for them. Then they see ballot instructions: “Presidential Electors: vote for one slate” or words to that effect. Nor do they see the names of Presidential electors. Instead they see the names of Presidential (and Vice-Presidential) candidates. And they might think that Presidential elections are a federal issue, with which no State may interfere. This is wrong. The people choose Presidential electors, and States decide how they choose them.
