A talk by David Schultz '80, MA '86

The U.S. is the only democracy in the world that does not select its president or prime minister by popular vote. Instead, the president is chosen by the Electoral College. This talk looks at why the constitutional framers created the Electoral College, how it works, and whether it should be retained, replaced or revamped.
