14 Electoral College Jokes That Will Give You A Much-Needed Laugh On Election Night

Once every four years, the most powerful college in the United States of America gets to do the thing that it has been doing for centuries: play a major role in determining who runs this country. I am, but of course, referring to the electoral college. You know, the body of electors, who vote for their states' preferred candidates. (I know, I know. What a stirring and impressive and totally accurate explanation of a complicated system. My high school government teacher must be so proud of me. *Pats self on back.*) As the Election Night hoopla rolls on and the electoral college does its thing, the tweets about the electoral college roll in. Funny, ridiculous tweets about the college of electorates. And I love 'em dearly.

Y’all, there are a lot of jokes about the electoral college popping up on social media right now. And y’all better believe I cannot get enough of them. I did not realize just how much I appreciated a good zinger about the electoral college until I was eyeball-deep in tweets about Tuesday's election. What can I say? On a stressful night like this one, I will take all of the laughs I can get.
