Lee does an excellent job of explaining the US’s somewhat baroque (and if you ask me, highly peculiar) means of electing a president. He gets through the whole video without once saying “electoral college”.
The title of this post refers to an asterisked disclaimer in the video that indicates that Lee’s explanation doesn’t apply to two states: Nebraska and Maine. What’s with them? From Wikipedia:
Two other states, Maine and Nebraska, use a tiered system where a single elector is chosen within each Congressional district and two electors are chosen by statewide popular vote.
So, Maine and Nebraska have a more complicated system?
