The Electoral College was one of most innovative and contentious components of the Constitution that came out of Philadelphia in the summer of 1787. It remains contentious to the present day, provoking questions and debates about fairness and the nature of America’s democratic principles related to presidential elections. With the country quickly approaching the 2020 election, join us for a timely discussion of this controversial American institution.

Hosted by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, this roundtable discussion will be moderated by Dr. William Leeman, associate professor in the Department of History and director of the Pell Honors Program.
