Focus on the Electoral College

The Electoral College has been in the news this past week. Established in Article II of the Constitution by our nation's founders, it has been described lately as "outdated," "excellent," and "doing what it needs to do." 

To help our 8th graders sort this all out, election and campaign finance law attorney Adam Bonin presented – with Constitution in hand – at this morning's Monthly Constitutional.  Students learned about the framers' original intent of the Electoral College and considered different electoral scenarios if it were not to exist.

Thank you, Adam, for sharing your expertise and insights with our constitutional scholars!

Our Monthly Constitutional presenter in December will be Lynn Marks, former executive director of Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts.
