probably so, but it's a multi-level process:

the Missouri ballot wording reminds one that your vote is for the 'Presidential Electors for John Doe'.

The electors receiving the most popular votes then get together and vote. The person receiving the majority of their votes becomes president.

there are two bases of a democratic republic:
1) 'one man - one vote' and
2) committees (Senate, Congress, City Council, Board of Supervisors, et al) are elected to do the heavy lifting, again using the 'one man - one vote' principle...
