Making Democracy Work:

Why Abolish the Electoral College?

What is the National Popular Vote

Interstate Compact?

Did you know that the Electoral College is detracting from our democracy by reducing voter turnout? The League of Women Voters-US has a position on abolishing the Electoral College, and delegates voted to take action on states adopting the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPV) at the June 2018 convention as part of the Making Democracy Work program for the 2018-20 biennium. In this important program, we will start with a little history about the Electoral College, bust some common myths, and learn how the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is a good stop-gap solution. LWV-Illinois has led this activity by providing information and slides to local leagues to present. An ad hoc committee of local LWV-Appleton members will present that information for this educational program.

WHEN;  Monday February 18, 5:00-6:30 pm

WHERE:  Copper Rock coffee shop 210 College Ave. in downtown Appleton

Copper Rock is providing the venue at no charge, so please buy food and beverages to enjoy throughout the meeting! Come early if you want to order food--the program will begin promptly at 5:30.
