The registered voters in the United States, vote for members of the Electoral College in each state. Each state is allocated a number of electors that is equal to the size of that States delegation in both houses of Congress combined.

The person chosen by the people is not always the person that becomes President, after being chosen by the Electoral College.  In recent years, this happened in 2000 and again in 2016.
