While the Electoral College is a constitutionally mandated process of our political system, it is not without its critics. According to the National Archives, there have been over 700 proposals to reform or eliminate the Electoral College as we know it.
This week we will explore current thoughts on the electoral college as we welcome George C. Edwards III University Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Jordan Chair in Presidential Studies Emeritus at Texas A&M University.
Professor Edwards has also served as Professor of American Government at the University of Oxford, the John Adams Fellow at the University of London, and in senior visiting positions at Sciences Po-Paris, Peking University, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He is an Associate Member of Nuffield College, Oxford, and was Founder and Director of The Center for Presidential Studies. Professor Edwards has also written or edited 26 books on American politics and policy making and is editor of Presidential Studies Quarterly.
