QUESTION: What happens if neither Presidential candidate wins the majority of Electoral College votes?
ANSWER: If neither Presidential candidate wins at least 270 electoral votes, then the election moves on to the House of Representatives. According to the National Archives, the representatives will elect one of the top three presidential candidates for President of the United States.
Each state will be given one vote and the state representatives have to vote together as one unit regardless of party alignment.
In order to win, a candidate must receive a minimum of 26 votes.
