Fun Fact: George Washington’s Electoral Record

Fun facts about George Washington

George Washington is the only president to receive every single vote in the electoral college. James Monroe won every single state in the 1820 election (running unopposed) though one single elector named William Plumer pledged 1 vote to John Quincy Adams. Some credit the move to preserve Washington’s legacy, but others claim that Plumer thought Monroe was a mediocre president.
