Today's Vote: The Electoral College

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute.

The Kennedy Institute invites 8th-12th grade classes to join us for a facilitated virtual Senate simulation that explores the question of whether or not a constitutional amendment should be enacted to abolish the Electoral College. In this one-hour program, students will role-play U.S. senators as they learn about the process for electing the President of the United States, and consider a resolution to amend or end the use of the Electoral College.

Please note that this event requires an additional registration step. Please register for the Zoom link here. Once you complete the form, Zoom will automatically send you a unique Zoom link to your email.
