How does the election work in US?

The winner of the election of US is mainly decided through a system called the Electoral College. Each of the 50 states and the Washington DC, is given a number of electoral college votes, adding up to a total of 538 votes. More populous states get more electoral college votes than smaller ones.

A candidate in US needs 270 electoral college votes to win the election.

In every state except Maine and Nebraska – the candidate who gets the most votes wins all of the state’s electoral college votes.

Due to these rules, a candidate can win the election without getting the most votes at the national level. This happened at the last election where Donald Trump won a majority of electoral college votes as well as most of the people voted for Hillary Clinton as Prime Minister across the US.
