ALA Booklist
Each book in the timely and informative new series U.S. Presidential Elections: How They Work (6 titles) focuses on one aspect of the country's elections for president, using recent and older historical examples to illustrate the concept. In The Electoral College, Corso examines the history and workings of the Electoral College, from broad topics (like how many electors each state gets and why) to precise details about how the electors' votes are cast, compiled, and counted. Most of the books end with an eye toward future changes and improvements. Although the main text can sometimes be a little dry, "Path to the Presidency" tidbits, somewhat more extensive sidebars, and captioned photos add interest.

The Electoral College is the body of people who elect the president and vice president of the United States. Many U.S. citizens are confused by this system, which dates back to the creation of the U.S. Constitution. When citizens vote for a presidential candidate, they're actually voting for an elector who will cast a vote for their state for that candidate in the Electoral College. This system is a controversial subject in American politics. Primary sources and informative sidebars lend historical context to help young readers understand this essential aspect of U.S. presidential elections.
