The current system consists of 538 electors - the total number of members of the US Senate and House of Representatives, plus three electors for the capital Washington - who vote in favor of the candidate who gets the most votes in a state.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke made his first campaign stop in New Hampshire last night, rolling into Keene State College just after 8 p.m.
