On The Electoral College

Just so you know, Civics hasn't been offered in most public schools since the late 1960s and early 1970s. I graduated in 1974 and was never offered a civics class.

As for the Electoral College: I fully understand the need but question if it works as intended. For example: How many of us actually know who our electors are?

It is said we vote for electors but I've never seen electors on any ballot. Have you?

That leads me to believe that electors represent political parties rather than actual voters. Am I wrong?
