Demystifying the U.S. Electoral Process
July 2, 2008 @ 9:30 pm - July 3, 2008 @ 12:00 am
It’s an election year and as people rush to the polls, how many of them actually understand how the system works? For those who choose to abstain and try to find other means of change, how often is their position belittled because “if you don’t vote, you can’t complain?” Does your vote really count? How does the Electoral College really work? What are the roles of delegates and super delegates and how will primary delegates affect the general election? This lecture will simplify and answer these questions from a historical and contemporary perspective and address an effective Reconstruction-era Constitutional remedy.
