Reminder to Vote For Town Council on Tuesday

by State of Indiana on May 3, 2015
 

Tuesday, May 5 is the Election for the Town Council in Bremen.  Take the time to go vote for your town officials.  These are the individuals that are in charge of our town and who make financial decisions for the town's well being.

Even though this is not a Presidential Election, we thought it fitting to talk a little about the Electoral College and how it works.  Below is information given by the State of Indiana on how it works and who our Electors have been throughout the years...

Election Division Presidential Electors FAQ

Q1: How many presidential electors does Indiana have? What determines this number? Indiana currently has 11 presidential electors. Article 2, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution of the United States provides that each state shall appoint a number of electors equal to the number of Senators or Representatives to which the state is entitled in Congress. Since Indiana has currently has 9 U.S. Representatives and 2 U.S. Senators, the state is entitled to 11 electors.

Q2: What are the requirements to serve as a presidential elector in Indiana? The requirements are set forth in the Constitution of the United States. Article 2, Section 1, Clause 2 provides that "no Senator or Representative, or person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector." Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment also states that "No person shall be... elector of President or Vice-President... who, having previously taken an oath... to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. Congress may be a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability." These requirements are included in state law at Indiana Code 3-8-1-6(b).

Q3: How does a person become a candidate to be chosen as a presidential elector in Indiana? Three political parties (Democratic, Libertarian, and Republican) have their presidential and vicepresidential candidates placed on Indiana ballots after their party's national convention. The Indiana presidential electors pledged to support the party's candidates are chosen at the state conventions of these political parties. The state party conventions are usually held no later than June before the presidential election. Sometimes the individuals nominated at these state party conventions are recommended by party caucuses held earlier in each congressional district. Traditionally in Indiana, the state party conventions nominate an elector and an alternate elector for each congressional district in the state, along with two other electors and two other alternates who are designated as running "at large". However, since the electors run as a slate throughout the entire state, and not as individuals within districts, this designation has no practical effect on the election process. If any other political party, or an independent presidential candidate, wishes to appear on Indiana's presidential election ballot, the party or candidate must circulate a petition to be placed on the ballot. The petition must be signed by at least 34,194 Indiana voters, and include the names of the Indiana presidential elector candidates of that party or candidate. Write-in presidential candidates must file a declaration of write-in candidacy, and include the name of at least one presidential elector candidate on their declaration. The presidential electors for the presidential and vice-presidential candidates who receive the most votes in Indiana are then certified as the official presidential electors for the state. The winning slate of electors is only required to receive more votes in Indiana than any other elector slate. A majority (51%) of votes cast in Indiana is not required to be elected.

Q4: Do the names of the presidential elector candidates appear on the general election ballot? No. Until the 1936 presidential election, the name of each presidential elector candidate appeared on the statewide ballot. However, since that election, only the name of the candidates nominated for president and vice-president are printed on the ballot. State law currently prohibits the names of the presidential elector candidates from being listed.

Q5: Can a voter split their vote between presidential elector candidates of different political parties? No. In Indiana, a vote can only be cast for the entire slate of electors (usually eleven) nominated by a political party or independent candidate.

Q6: What happens after the presidential election in November? How and when do the electors assemble and cast their ballots? After election day, each county sends its presidential vote totals to the Secretary of State in Indianapolis. It can take several weeks after the election for the final version of all these county returns to arrive. When all the county votes have been received (and any errors or omissions corrected), the Secretary of State certifies to the Governor the final, official returns for the presidential elector candidates. The Governor then signs a "Certificate of Ascertainment." This document officially appoints the winning presidential electors to serve as Indiana's members of the Electoral College. Three copies of this document are immediately sent to the National Archives in Washington. On the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December, Indiana's electors meet at 10 a.m., Indianapolis time, in the chamber of the House of Representatives in the State House. After an invocation, the Presentation of the Colors by the Indiana National Guard, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, singing of the National Anthem, and any welcoming remarks by state officials, the Certificate of Ascertainment and the roll call of the electors are read. The electors who are present then take their oath of office. If an elector is absent, the other electors must wait until at least 11 a.m. before proceeding further. If the missing elector does not arrive by then, or if the elector has submitted a resignation letter before the meeting, then the remaining electors vote to fill the vacant position. Since the major political parties usually choose "alternate electors" at the state party convention, a designated alternate is usually chosen by paper ballot and then commissioned by the Governor as an elector after taking the oath of office. The presidential electors then vote for President on a paper ballot. The ballots are tabulated and the results announced. The electors then cast a separate paper ballot for Vice-President, and the result of this voting is announced. The electors then sign a Certificate that sets forth the votes each Presidential candidate and Vice-Presidential candidate received, and a transmittal cover sheet. As required by federal law, copies of the Certificate of Ascertainment and the Certificate of Votes Cast are sent to the Vice-President (as President of the United States Senate), to the National Archives, to the Chief Judge of the Southern District Court of Indiana (the federal courts), and to the Indiana Secretary of State.

Q7: What happens after presidential elector votes are sent to Washington? The electoral votes of each state are sent to the Vice-President of the United States. The votes are counted in a joint session of the United States Senate and House of Representatives, usually on January 6, although Congress can change the date of this joint session (to January 4, 2013, for example, when January 6 fell on a Sunday). After the electoral votes from all states are states are counted, the Vice-President of the United States declares the candidates receiving a majority of the electoral votes cast to be President-elect and Vice President-elect. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes cast for either office, the Constitution sets forth special procedures for the House to choose the President and the Senate to choose the Vice-President. The President-elect and Vice-President elect take their oaths of office for four year terms beginning at noon on the January 20 following the presidential election.

INDIANA ELECTORAL COLLEGE FACTS Indiana has never had a "faithless" elector. Each individual has voted for the presidential and vicepresidential candidates to whom they were pledged. The first woman to serve as an Indiana presidential elector was Mary Agnes Sleeth, an "at large" elector in 1924. Ms. Sleeth was a farmer and life-long resident of Rush County, and died on August 9, 1957. Reid M. Dugger of Franklin served as an Indiana presidential elector six times, more than any other individual: (1940, 1944, 1948, 1952, 1956, and 1960). Kenneth R. Peterson of Highland served four times as an elector (1976, 1980, 1984, 1988).
