Eleventh and Twelfth grade students from both Mrs. Anderson’s classes and Mr. Ryan Murphy’s classes attended the compelling lecture given by the Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections. “The Electoral College was devised by the founding fathers as a compromise between the election of a President by popular vote and by the Congress. The College currently consists of 538 electors -- based on the total number of Representatives and Senators, plus three District of Columbia electors.” There was a provocative question and answer (Q&A) open forum, with great student participation recognized throughout the sessions.
“Students came away with a better understanding of the Electoral College versus Popular Vote.” Paul discussed how the Electoral College was perceived via the Constitution, with the thirteen colonies, and the pros and cons of the electoral process.
