Who Elects the President and How Are We Doing?
The President of the American Bar Association, at the recent ABA convention in Honolulu, remarked that the presidential election process resembles something from "Alice in Wonderland." The newspapers are talking about the possibility of a third candidate receiving enough electoral college votes to throw the presidential election into the House of Representatives. And most recently, the Democratic Convention saw a move to open the convention and "un bind" the delegates. Delegates to conventions are selected in a variety of ways: elections, caucuses, conventions, and "other."
Wouldn't you like to have a better perspective on the process of electing the president? You'll want to come to the forum the State League is presenting on "Who Elects the President and How Are We Doing?" The guest speaker for this exciting event is Dr. Herbert Alexander, Professor of Political Science at the University of Southern California and Director of the Citizens' Research Foundation.
In addition to Dr. Alexander's presentation, the League-sponsored forum will also feature discussions with Hawaii's experts on: the primary system, direct election, public opinion polls, the electoral college, alternative parties, and the role of the media.
"Who Elects the President and How Are We Doing?" promises to be thought-provoking and informative, and we know you won't want to miss it. All League members have received a special invitation through the mail. Don't forget to send in your reservations. Friends of the League are also welcomed to attend; please contact the League office (531-7448) for further details.
