In the ongoing debates surrounding the United States' voting process, few topics are as heatedly discussed as the electoral college. It was established as a safeguard for democracy, but today many fear the electoral college does just the opposite; twice in recent elections the president who won the election did not win the popular vote, and many are concerned that the electoral college has outlasted its relevance. This collection of essays explores the impact, significance, and history of the electoral college, providing students with a wide-ranging look at what this institution means and key ideas about its future.
