Quirky rules about the Presidential Election might surprise you—in fact, they will surprise you

There are some really quirky laws governing a Presidential Election. For instance, did you know that if a president-elect dies before he's sworn in, but after Congress certifies an election that the vice president-elect would become the president? Or, did you know if a Puerto Rican person lives on the mainland [or Hawaii or Alaska], he or she can vote in the Presidential Election—but if that same person's established residency was on the Island of Puerto Rico, he or she can't vote in the regular election?
