The Electoral College votes are counted by Congress on Jan. 6. Learn how the Electoral College really works and the role it plays in our republic by joining us for a virtual luncheon on Thursday. Jan. 7: How the Electoral College works and why it’s worth keeping, with Trent England and Joe Pinion.

Speakers: Trent England is executive director of Save Our States, a group dedicated to defending the Electoral College.

Joe Pinion is chairman of A Better Us, a philanthropic project devoted to fighting poverty and strengthening communities. 

Save Our States last year released a documentary, “Safeguard: An Electoral College Story,” to explain the unintended (and intended) consequences of abolishing the Electoral College in favor of a national popular vote. In this discussion, we’ll talk about the merits and flaws of the Electoral College system and the perils of replacing it with a national popular vote. 

This Zoom webinar will last approximately 30 minutes. There is no charge to attend.
