Electoral College

indirect-democracy Voting System for elections in the US

each state (plus Washington DC) gets a minimum of 3 votes (number of Senators plus number of Representatives), going up roughly based on population. But the smaller states are definitely over-represented (which was intentional in the design of the system).
