On Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. EDT, Donald R. Brand, professor and chair of political science at Holy Cross, will give a live web lecture on the Electoral College and the 2012 Presidential Election.
Elections are fundamentally shaped by the rules of the electoral game. For American presidential elections, the Electoral College structures the electoral process and determines the electoral strategies of all candidates. This lecture will discuss the Electoral College and assess its strengths and weaknesses as one of our most controversial political institutions. It will also examine the ways in which the Electoral College is shaping the 2012 presidential election.
At the end of the 20-minute presentation, Brand, who specializes in the study of the presidency and American politics, will answer viewer questions submitted online. You may submit questions at any time during the lecture by using our chat room. He will also be accepting questions via Twitter (#hclive or @hcalumni), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Facebook.
