Campus Constitution Day program
Sept. 17 focuses on election of president
Electoral College or Popular Vote? That’s the topic of a roundtable discussion with audience participation for Manchester College’s annual Constitution Day program on Wednesday, Sept. 17. Area residents and students are invited to the free 1½-hour program at 7 p.m. in the Lahman Room of the College Union.
Joining Manchester College faculty at the roundtable is Dan Johnson-Weinberger, adjunct professor of law at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. He works with National Popular Vote, a bill that would guarantee the presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Electoral College is an indirect election in which popularly elected representatives from each state select the president.
Manchester College faculty members participating are Katherine A. Tinsley, associate professor of history, and Leonard A. Williams, professor of political science.
The annual Manchester College program commemorates Sept. 17, 1787, the day delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution of the United States of America.
