Nov 7 (Reuters) - Voters went to the polls in the U.S.
presidential election on Tuesday but the Electoral College, not
the popular vote, actually elects the president of the United
States.
    There are 538 members of the Electoral College, allotted to
each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Two hundred
seventy votes are needed to win the election.
    Following is a tally of the likely Electoral College votes
won by Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, based on states where at
least two television networks have projected a winner, as well
as those in which little contest was expected:


LIKELY TOTAL IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE RACE SO FAR  
 Obama:                     303                       
 Romney:                    206
