An electoral college is an intermediary process between a popular vote and the election of a representative, where each subdivision of a region is given a number of "electoral votes" that are all won or lost depending on the popular vote in that subregion. Despite the pretentious use of the word "college", the electoral college is not an institution, but rather a method of erasing minority votes from a state. Ostensibly, the number of electoral votes is supposed to correspond to the population, but in actuality this process ends up devaluing huge numbers of votes.
Electoral colleges are not necessary, and they don't create equity. They perpetuate a number of social injustices and disenfranchisements.
The United States is famous for having an electoral college but it is not the only nation that uses one.
