Print The Deciders

Once every 4 years, a process called the Electoral College elects the President of the United States of America.  What is the Electoral College, how does it work, and why do we elect the President this way?

In the Spring of 2016, CUP collaborated with Teaching Artist Nicholas Weltyk and Brian Gilman’s English class at the Brooklyn Community Arts and Media High School to identify who decides who the next U.S. President will be.

To investigate, students participated in a mock election, went into the neighborhood to survey community members about the Presidential voting process, and interviewed Amanda Melillo of the Campaign Finance Board. This booklet is a guide to what they discovered.
