Electors are real people, but in practice they are electoral units. Twenty-nine states even have laws punishing electors for the wrong vote. Since the turn of the 20th century, a total of only 17 electors have voted for the wrong presidential candidate as promised. Of those 17 cases, 8 occurred in 1912., When the presidential candidate in question died before the election.
