Drinks & Democracy – Abolition of the Electoral College

how it works and why we use it. More and more Americans are fed up with this antiquated system and would like to see it abolished. Join the League of Women Voters for a brief history of the Electoral College, a discussion of its impact on our democracy, and a plan for changing the system. Rosemary Heilemann, co-president of the Deerfield/Lincolnshire League, will lead the discussion.

This event is part of our speakers’ series – Making Democracy Work and ties into the League of Women Voters of Illinois’s grassroots Electoral College Committee’s efforts to make abolishing the Electoral College a National League program focus for 2018-2020 to be decided at the League of Women Voters’ 53rd National Convention in Chicago June 28-July1, 2018.
