Why Do We Still Have The Electoral College? | Throughline | NPR

What is it, why do we have it, and why hasn’t it changed? Born from a rushed, fraught, imperfect process, the origins and evolution of the Electoral College might surprise you and make you think differently about not only this upcoming presidential election, but our democracy as a whole.

NPR’s Throughline podcast did a series of episodes on the history of our election system called (mis)Representative Democracy.
