One Person, One Vote, How We Elect Our Congressmen and our President    NEW!

The idea of our voting system for Congress is simple in principle. The devil is in the details. Each state is allowed a number of representatives roughly proportional to its population. In the case of the House of Representatives, these become our Congressmen. In the case of the election of our President, they become the Electoral College. This class will discuss 1) the details for the Congressional case, including five ways Congresspersons have been apportioned to States and paradoxes that have occurred., and 2) the presidential elections in which the successful presidential candidate did not win the popular vote.
