Electoral College The Electoral College was instituted by the Founding Fathers as a separation of powers because it ensured that the executive branch would be independent of the legislature. The Electoral College also provided equal representation between large and small states. All but two states, Maine and Nebraska, use a winner-take-all system for awarding electoral votes. Therefore, the candidate with the most popular votes nationwide is not always the candidate who wins the maximum electoral votes. In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore had more popular votes than George W. Bush, but he still lost the presidency.
