Afternoon Delight: Remember the Electoral College?
by Jerome Weeks 5 Sep 2012

After all, it’s actually what elects our presidents. So it might be a good idea to brush up on it, what with all the TV maps and numbers getting thrown at us these days. An entertaining video lesson on our campaign anomaly.

CTA TBD


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to knuckle down to work. Check back weekdays at 1 p.m. for another one.
You probably remember the electoral college vaguely from some civics or government class. The college is what actually elects our presidents. So it might be a good idea to brush up on it, what with all the TV maps and numbers that are getting thrown at us these days. It’s also a good idea to know how it works because sometimes, it doesn’t. It has failed to reflect the popular, democratic vote — as recently as, you know, the 2000 election. So here’s an entertaining video lesson on our campaign anomaly — and what’s wrong with it.
