Join Professor Terry Randolph for “The Electoral College: Will Florida Decide It?” to learn about the Electoral College process and why our founding fathers established this controversial method of electing a President. In BRPL’s latest Civic Lecture for Savvy Citizens, Randolph demystifies the Electoral College and explains why Florida is always a key swing-vote state.
“This talk wraps up our yearlong Civic Lectures for Savvy Citizens programming, and I think it’s the most important,” notes Oyuki De Santiago Poletz, Program Services Librarian. “Many citizens don’t understand how their votes translate to the Electoral College, and many feel frustrated by its structure. This topic is already being bandied about in the media, and Florida, with a whopping 29 electoral votes, is absolutely crucial in this election. This program is the perfect resource for voters to be better informed.”
Terry Randolph is Department Chair of Political Science and History at Palm Beach State College. He is actively involved in Florida Model UN and has coordinated the Civic Lectures for Savvy Citizens series at the Boca Raton Public Library.
