Problems in US Democracy: the electoral college and gerrymandering

CPNSS: Voting Power in Practice lectures, sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust

If the electoral college can elect the loser of the popular vote and make voters in some states more powerful than those in others, and if gerrymandering of congressional districts allows representatives to pick their voters and control the outcome of congressional elections, how can the US repair its electoral institutions?

Steve Bickerstaff is professor of Law at the University of Texas School of Law. Nicholas R Miller is professor of political science at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
