The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens.
Early Voting is the process by which a person can vote during the two weeks before the specified Election Day. You can participate in Early Voting by casting your ballot by mail, or in person at designated early voting polling stations.
Election Day is a specified day, typically the Tuesday following early voting, in which persons can cast their ballot for the election of public offices.
A Primary Election is when voters of each party cast their ballots, usually in the spring time, to choose candidates within their party for specific offices. The winners will then run for office in the General Election against their opposing parties.
