This, too, confirms the historic right of District residents, as one District resident living north of the Potomac River was part of the Maryland Congressional delegation, and a second District resident, living in Alexandria that was then part of the District, represented Virginia in the House of Representatives.
Similarly, it is under the power granted by this Section 8 that Congress, in effect, terminated the right of District residents to vote in national elections as residents of Maryland by enacting the Organic Act of 1801, which established a governmental structure for the new federal district.
Finally, to end speculation by some that District residents would not be eligible to be elected as Senators or Representatives if they exercised their voting rights as residents of Maryland, H.R. 3709 specifically provides to the contrary.

 Electoral College
But instead of a simple national vote, the Constitution requires the presidency to be decided by 51 separate elections in each state and the District of Columbia -- all but Nebraska and Maine winner-take-all -- with electoral votes allocated based on the size of each state's congressional delegation.
Justification for the Electoral College is rooted "in racism and sexism," Amar says, noting no other political bodies (whether foreign nations or our own states and cities) think enough of the Electoral College system to use it for their elections.
With a proportional system, a candidate with 55 percent of the popular vote in a state wins 55 percent of that state's electoral votes, but not all; if the second place finisher receives 45 percent of the popular vote, they win 45 percent of the electoral votes, instead of nothing.
