Video: Prager U on the Electoral College and why it’s important

With election season already upon us, Prager University is here with a double-feature on the Electoral College, presented by author and attorney Tara Ross. In two five-minute videos, you will learn what the Electoral College is and why it’s a central feature of American democracy.

The videos also address the campaign to render the Electoral College useless, instead making U.S. presidential elections a majority-vote affair. This is a civics lesson most American students never get.
