      The electors are appointed by each party. Only the winning parties electors,
      in each state, will vote in the electoral college. They tend to be party
      regulars, campaign contributors or people who have worked on elections, and
      the like, but there is no real litmus test other than party loyalty. You
      could become an elector yourself. Go talk to your party. They cannot be
      impeached, and each electors vote is final, and cannot be appealed. The
      elector is not legally bound to vote for the candidate that they have been
      elected to vote for, and there have been defections in the past, but very
      few.

      The electoral college is, in my opinion, an archaic institute that was never
      intended to be permanent and should be abolished. Unfortunately, it will
      take a constitutional ammendment. This is an excellent subject to speak to
      your congressman about.

      Just exactly WHO are the people who make up the electoral college?
      Are they elected officials?
      Are they Senators?
      Can they be impeached?
