From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a complete list of people who received an electoral vote in a United States presidential election. For all elections past 1804, "P" denotes a presidential vote, and "VP" denotes a vice presidential vote. Bold entries are successful candidates; Italicized entries are runners-up who became Vice President under the original system.

Horace Greeley received three electoral votes in the 1872 election, but they were disqualified due to Greeley's death.

This list includes three females, all of whom received vice presidential votes. The first was Tonie Nathan who in 1972 received one vote from a faithless elector. This was followed by Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and Sarah Palin in 2008.

Various electors did not cast their votes, including:
