ONLINE: Who Really Elects the President: The Workings of the Electoral College
10/27/2020 | 07:00PM - 08:30PM
No Registration Required.
Have you ever wondered about how the Electoral College actually works? How many votes does each state receive? How someone comes to be an elector? In the early days of the Republic, the Founding Fathers designed this political process as a way to manage an unruly public and, if needed, overturn the election results. So has it worked in the way that it was intended? In this program, participants will learn about this history of the Electoral College and how it works through a first-hand account.
This program will be presented by Frank Argote-Freyre, an Associate Professor at Kean University. He earned his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in Latin American History. Frank received a NJCH Honor Book designation in 2007. Also, he was an elector for President Obama in 2012.
