Elections

Prybourne uses a modified system of the electoral college that elects the President and Vice President of Prybourne every four years. The President and Vice President are not elected directly by the voters. Instead, they are elected by "electors" who are chosen by popular vote on a state-by-state basis. Electors are apportioned to each state, but not to territorial possessions of Prybourne, such as Rymoore and ISSP.The number of electors in each state is equal to the number of members of Congress to which the state is entitled.In total, there are 536 electors, based on there being 512 representatives and 24 Senators.

Electors are pledged to particular presidential and vice presidential candidates, though unpledged electors are possible. In all states, except Newley and Esterash, electors are elected on a "winner-take-all" basis. That is, all electors pledged to the presidential candidate who wins the most votes in a state become electors for that state. Newley and Esterash use the "congressional district method", selecting one elector within each congressional district by popular vote and selecting the remaining two electors by a statewide popular vote. Although no elector is required by federal law to honor a pledge, there have only been very few occasions when an elector voted contrary to a plegde or oath.

The candidate that receives an absolute majority of electoral votes for the offices of President or Vice President is elected to that office. If no candidate receives a majority for President, then the House of Representatives will select the President, with each state delegation (instead of each Representative) having only one vote. If no candidate receives a majority for Vice President, then the Senate will select the Vice President, with each Senator having one vote.
