Only 5 states use popular elections to choose electors, an all time low, as NH, MA, PA, and GA switch to the legislature choosing electors.  RI uses popular election for the first time, and TN uses its own unique system: legislators choose 3 persons from each county, who in turn choose a presidential elector from each of 3 electoral districts.
