Electoral College Legitimacy in Modern Political Arena Presentation

List at least three valid points to support your argument. Present you argument in a PowerPoint presentation.

As you complete your presentation, be sure to:

  • Use speaker's notes to expand upon the bullet point main ideas on your slides, making references to research and theory with citation.
