For those that may be interested, this is the complete list of Electors who will choose the next President of the United States of America.
I really don't have a opinion on them other than may God have mercy on their souls.

Good thread, and thank you for the info Buck.
It's the last gesture of our republic to make the will of
the several states 'equal'... but I submit the will of the
people has been shortchanged in almost every case,
due to communication now between them and DC
done at the speed of light.
Maybe someday the elections will become truly popular
and a more fair assessment of the body politics' will.

It looks like theres over 1000 people there. And how are there 'equal' numbers of 'third parties' ?

The number of electors is equal to the number of Representatives plus the number of Senators plus three electors from the District of Columbia. There is no provision for "third parties." Your avatar name is quite appropriate.

Here's a thread on how the Electoral College came to be and works.

No need to be snippy. Did you look at the actual wikipedia page?

Sorry,
Looks like BS.
Since when are E.C. members in New York represent the : Conservative Party, Green Party, Working Families Party, Independence Part, Women's Equality Party, and Libertarian Party. The United States Electoral College is the body that elects the President and Vice President of the United States every four years. Citizens of the United States do not directly elect the president or the vice president; instead they choose "electors", who usually pledge to vote for particular candidates. The number of electors in each state is equal to the number of members of Congress to which the state is entitled, while the Twenty-third Amendment grants the District of Columbia the same number of electors as the least populous state, currently three. Therefore, there are currently 538 electors, corresponding to the 435 Representatives and 100 Senators, plus the three additional electors from the District of Columbia. The Constitution bars any federal official, elected or appointed, from being an elector.
Aaauuugh, I have to agree with the doggy! Well, when your right, your right.

IDK doggy.
You think this should be HOAXed?

I don't see any need to call it "hoax". It's just a question of understanding what the WIKI page is offering (I can see it, and I'm not even American). The Republicans and Democrats have each got their list of nominated electors in each state (and other parties have too, in some states), and the vote on Tuesday decides which list goes into action, state by state, and which list stays at home.
The electors for third parties won't come into action at all unless they win a state, but I suppose that putting forward a list anyway is part of the process of being on the ballot.
