The United States of America is a Republic, not a Democracy.
A Republic is a form of a mixed constitution, which is composed of some of the powers of a Monarchical, Dictatorship, and Democratical government.
We elect Democratically members of congress.
Members of congress in a Monarchical manor form our Congress.
Historically, or member of Congress would vote in a Dictatorship aka President, however, due to the cap on the number of Congress members there are, we now elect a person from our district to vote for a President. Which means, you don't vote for the President.
Knowledge is True power, So now you know.
