In considering a proposal to reform (but not necessarily abolish) the Electoral College, reflect on what happened in Florida in the 2000 presidential election. Were the voices of the voters in Florida really heard? What would you suggest to ensure that this outcome is avoided in the future?
Your essay must:
Summarize how the Electoral College works.
Explain the pros and cons of whether to keep or abolish the Electoral College.
Explain one proposal for changing the Electoral College process without abolishing it (i.e., without having to amend the Constitution).
Evaluate this proposal from two perspectives: (a) the relevance of the Electoral College’s underlying rationale to contemporary American politics, and (b) the impact of the Electoral College on presidential leadership capacity.
Follow these requirements when writing the short essay and remember that if you do not have first hand knowledge of the inner workings of the Electoral College, the information was obtained from outside sources and must be cited and sources entered into the bibliography:
