National convention - In the United States, national party conventions are held every four years to nominate candidates for the presidency and vice presidency and to adopt a national platform.

Electoral college - or the sole purpose of electing the president and vice president of the United States.

Here are the definitions that have come up. But I'm confused! Do the national conventions select multiple of candidates with their own titles of 'president' and 'vp', and the electoral college selects from the national convention candidates only 2?
