Rather than directly casting votes for President on election day, U.S. citizens actually cast votes for Electoral College Electors. Each State is allocated a number of Electoral College Electors equal to the number of its U.S. Senators (always 2) plus the number of its U.S. House of Representatives Congressional Delegation. Since Texas has 32 Congressional Districts, Texas is allocated 34 Electors. Each political party in Texas selects its own slate of thirty-four Electoral College Electors during the respective party's state convention. Independent and write-in presidential candidates can also designate their slate of 34 electors.

In Texas, the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes determines which slate of 34 electors will cast the electoral votes for president some time in early December. In other words, if Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate, receives the most popular votes in Texas, then the Democratic Party's slate of 34 electors is certified to cast the Electoral College votes for president in Texas. A total of 270 out of 538 possible electoral votes is required to elect the President of the United States.
