Electing a President--Popular Vote or Electoral College?. Winning the presidential election without winning the popular vote has only occurred five times in the nation's history, but twice in the past 16 years. Come learn about the League's study of the electoral college and the position on which we can advocate for change, of which the National Popular Vote Compact is one acceptable way to achieve the goal of direct popular vote to elect our President.

All League members and friends are welcome. Hosted by LWV Greater Capital Area.
