The Federal Register has launched a new interactive Electoral College map that lets the public predict electoral votes for the upcoming presidential election and share their results through social media.
Users can predict which candidate will win which states, and the Electoral College website will keep a running tally. The user can then tweet or email predictions or create posts on Facebook to share.
After the election, the user can view the actual Certificates of Ascertainment and Vote from each state once the Federal Register has received and uploaded them to the website. The tool also allows users access to election information from previous presidential elections as far back as the 1964 election. Users can see who the candidates were and who won each state and pull up information about the popular vote totals.
The Federal Register has also posted a new video on how the Electoral College works:
