it's slowing folks down as they head to boulder. thank you. a lot of numbers flash ago cross your screen this evening. it's all about understanding the electoral college. 9 news reporter explains how it works. >> so you've heard of electoral college, but what is it? simply it's 538 people. they cast the official president. why 538? it's the same as number of people in congress plus three more for washington d.c. when you choose a candidate, you're really voting for lek terrors to support that candidate in the electoral college vote in december. this happened because the founding fathers couldn't agree. some wanted to see the people vote for president, others wanted congress to choose. we got the electoral college. each state gets a number of electors set on their
6:49 am
california has 55 -- biggest state, california has 55. wyoming gets just three. it takes 270 votes to win the thing. if nobody reaches that magic number, next president picked by favorite folks ever, congress. specifically the house of representatives. they pick from the top three candidates from the electoral college. here's the rub. each state gets only one vote. now california isn't more powerful than wyoming, they're the same. if the house can't vice president becomes president. the vp gets picked by the senate if electoral college dead locks. that's the electoral college in a nutshell. >> good morning. we have heard over and over, these are the two least liked candidates in modern history. you would think that would affect turnout. so far has it do you think?

6:51 am
independent upon this turnout. >> is from any way to tell if this is going to be late night or wrap up early? >> it could wrap up early. >> i think we'll watch a few ballot issues and maybe one congressional seat. those numbers the, if a lot of people vote today, that will have to be processed. >> sixth congressional probably. >> we didn't announce the senate years ago until morning. there are times it gets within a thousand. you don't want to call until every county is in. >> he's going to be here, hopefully not too late. he'll call the race for 9 news.
