The Electoral College: Why is it in Place

The electoral college has been part of the US voting systems for more than two centuries. Debate on why it is still in use rather than the popular vote is very present from the general population. Comments such as “outdated,” “anti-democratic,” and “arbitrary” fly around as critiques against the institution. Join us as we discuss the history of the electoral college, if it should remain, and the mechanics behind the scenes.
