Should the Electoral College be Abolished?

The Electoral College is a puzzling system that often has people scratching their heads about how it works and why we use it. Join us for a brief history of the Electoral College, a discussion of its impact on our democracy, and a plan for change.

The program will be presented by Karen Glennemeier of the League of Women Voters of Wilmette.  Karen is part of a regional League committee that has been studying the Electoral College and organizing to abolish it since the last presidential election.  Karen is a Conservation Biologist by profession and spends her free time working with local activists on issues impacting democracy and our environment.
