Colligative properties: vapor pressure with an electrolyte

I'm trying to figure out how an electrolyte affects vapour pressure in a solution. My book (Chang chemistry) only lists the formulas for osmotic pressure, boiling point and freezing point. I guess Raoult's law would be something like:

[tex]P_{1}=i X_{1} P^{1}_{o}[/tex]

Sorry for not respecting the template, it just doesn't seem appropriate for this question.

In the case of electrolyte you may just assume its vapor pressure is zero, then follow the molar fraction proportional to vapor pressure path. Don't forget Van't Hoff factor.
