LAWRENCE IS BEING HELPED AT THE BALTIMORE COUNTY DETENTION CENTER.

WELL, TODAY, TODAY WE SAW DEMOCRACY IN ACTION.

538 ELECTORS MAKE UM THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE CAST THEIR VET FOR PRESIDENT.

ABC2 NEWS' MALLORY SOFASTAII WAS HERE AT MEETING IN ANNAPOLIS.

Reporter: JAMIE AS EXPECTED ALL 10 OF MARYLAND'S DEMOCRATIC ELECTORS VOTED FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

MORE SURPRISINGLY THOUGH WAS THE DISAPPOINTMENT AND DISSATISFACTION IN THE SYSTEM EXPRESSED BY SOME OF THE ELECTORS.

I'M BOTH PLEASED AND PROUD TO CAST MY VOTE AS YES, FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

Reporter: MARYLAND MAY HAVE VOTED FOR CLINTON BUT ACROSS THE COUNTRY DONALD TRUMP IS EXPECTED TO WIN MORE THAN THE 270 ELECTORAL VETS NEEDED.

I'M SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING THE FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT SOMEONE WHO IS QUALIFIED, HAS THE EXPERIENCE, THE TEMPERAMENT TO GOVERN THIS GREAT NATION.

AND BUT YOU GOT TO RESPECT THE PROGRESS.

Reporter: THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE DATES BACK TO FIRST ELECTION IN 1789 THE IDEAS CAME FROM MARYLAND'S OLD SYSTEM.

ALEXANDER HAMILTON AND ALL THE FOUNDING FATHERS LOOKED AT MARYLAND'S MODEL AS A BLUEPRINT FOR ELECTING THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF OUR NATION.

Reporter: BUT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS UNDER FIRE ONCE AGAIN.

HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VET, SOMETHING HER SUPPORTERS SAY SHOULD DETERMINE THE PRESIDENCY.

IT DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE REVIEWED.

IT'S DISEN FRANCHISING FOR MANY PEOPLE WHEN ONE CANDIDATE WINS BY MORE THAN 2.

8 MILLION VOTES AND IS NOT PRESIDENT.

AND SO I THINK WE SHOULD LOOK AT IT AND WE SHOULD FIND A WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE NOT DISEN FRANCHISING VOTERS.

Reporter: ONE WAYS THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE INTERSTATE COMPACT AN AGREEMENT.

SO WE WERE THE FIRST STATE TO SIGN ONTO THE COMPACT, AS WELL.

WE WERE LEADING THE WAY FOR THE ORIGINAL FORM ASIAN AND NOW — FORMATION AND MAYBE THE AMENDMENTS, AS WELL.

THAT PROPOSAL IS FAR FROM BECOMING A REALITY.

NEXT ALL THE VOTES WILL GO TO JOE BIDEN AND ON JANUARY 6 DURING A JOINT SESSION OF.
