May 16, 12 p.m. | Humphrey Forum
The Center for the Study of Politics and Governance will host a panel discussion about the national popular vote on Monday, May 16, from 12 to 1:15 p.m. in the Humphrey Forum at the Humphrey Center. The American system of electing presidents by the Electoral College and not a majority of votes has produced presidents who have lost the popular vote and come close. Reformers seek to change the system so that winning presidents receive both popular vote and the Electoral College majorities. Dr. John Koza, president of National Popular Vote will be joined by Representative Duane Quam for a lively discussion about current legislation being considered by the Minnesota legislature and the national issue, moderated by Professor Larry Jacobs.
