Election Update with Electoral College Expert Ned Foley

The Jackson Center again welcomes electoral college expert Ned Foley for a free webinar on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, at 3:00 pm.


Professor Foley

Ned Foley holds the Ebersold Chair in Constitutional Law at The Ohio State University, where he also directs its election law program.

His new book, Presidential Elections and Majority Rule (Oxford University Press, 2020), excavates the long-forgotten philosophical premises of how the Electoral College is supposed to work, as revised by the Twelfth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and then uses this historical analysis to provide a feasible basis for reform of state laws that would enable the Electoral College to operate according to majority-rule objectives it was designed to achieve.


Ned will take us through whether and how the Electoral College functioned in our most recent election, as well as provide updates and arguments for and against electoral college reform in light of this. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions, and the webinar will be recorded. Pre-registration is required for this free webinar. Click here to register.
