How Americans Elect POTUS?

According to the American electoral system, the President of the United States is elected by the Electoral College, not directly elected by the voters. 

The president who receives more than half of the electoral votes is elected president.

 When voters vote on election day, they must not only choose among presidential candidates, but also 538 electors representing 50 states and Washington, DC, to form the electoral college. 

Most states and Washington, DC implement the "winner all" rule, that is, all the electoral votes of the state or the district are given to the presidential candidates who have obtained a relatively large number of voters in the state or district. 

The elected elector must swear an oath to vote for the candidate who wins in the state when the Electoral College votes. 

Therefore, the general election results can usually be calculated based on the results of the state elections on the polling day of the general election.
