“The History and Impact of the Electoral College”

The League of Women Voters Roselle/Bloomingdale will host a presentation titled, “The History and Impact of the Electoral College” on Tuesday, January 8th at 7:00 pm at the Bloomingdale Public Library located at 101 Fairfield Way in Bloomingdale. The Electoral College is a puzzling system that often has voters scratching their heads about how it works and why we use it. More and more Americans are questioning this system and would like to see it replaced with direct election of our President. Our guest speakers will be Issues Specialists from the state League, Peggy Pissarreck from LWV Arlington Heights, and Rosemary Heilemann from LWV Deerfield Area. They will lead a discussion including a brief history of the Electoral College, a discussion of its impact on our democracy, and how to change to a direct election of our President. Start the new year out right with a thought provoking evening with the League of Women Voters Roselle/Bloomingdale. This meeting is free and open to the public.
