With the 2016 football season just passing the midway point, its time to turn our attention to the never ending election and the Breeders’ Cup.

How Does The Presidential Election Work?
Each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, has a certain amount of electoral college votes to award a candidate, based on the number of members of Congress it has. This is roughly in line with each area’s population. Except in Maine and Nebraska, the votes are given on a winner-takes-all basis.
