Develop an argument that explains whether the Electoral College facilitates or impedes democracy.Articulate a defensible claim or thesis that responds to the prompt and establishes a line of reasoning.

Support your claim with at least two pieces of accurate and relevant information. At least one piece of evidence must be from one of the following foundational documents:

  1. Federalist No. 10
  2. U.S. Constitution

Use a second piece of evidence from another required foundational document from the list or from your study of the electoral process.

Use reasoning to explain why your evidence supports your claim/thesis.

Respond to an opposing or alternative perspective using refutation, concession, or rebuttal.

Be sure your work is neat, easy to read, and free from spelling or grammar errors.

Hi Mya, I can't answer this for you, but I'd be happy to work with you! Let me know! To start with, though, you should consider the following questions: Who benefits from the electoral college system? Why does the electoral college exist in the first place? Why did many delegates to the Constitutional Convention prefer the electoral college to other alternative systems? What were the alternatives they considered? Has anything changed since our founding that should force us to rethink how we elect presidents? Is the modern electoral college system what the framers originally envisioned? What were they trying to accomplish by establishing the electoral college in the first place? Do any election results (modern or otherwise) demonstrate whether the electoral college serves to facilitate or impede democracy? Best, Ben
