Electoral college: a history full of drama

Hosted by

Members of the Electoral College are expected to officially elect Donald Trump to the presidency today. Some have pushed for them to reject Trump. Others called for delaying the vote until the president-elect resolves potential conflicts of interest. Some electors themselves have requested a briefing on possible Russian interference in the election. None of this is likely to change things today, but this election has brought an unusual spotlight to the Electoral College.
