Oct. 28 event: Electoral College protects Alaska’s voice in national elections

    Over the past year leading Democrats have attacked America’s historic tradition of electing a president through the Electoral College system. Vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris is one of many figures who are either opposed to the longstanding election process or open to abolishing it in favor of a national popular vote.

    On Oct. 28, the Alaska Policy Forum is co-hosting a webinar to discuss the dangers of abandoning the Electoral College. The discussion will look at how the Electoral College protects federalism and the interests of rural states like Alaska, but the National Popular Vote interstate compact threatens to eliminate Alaskans’ voices on the national stage.

    “Electing a president is not a process that was taken lightly by America’s Founders,” a notice for the event states. “After great debate, the Electoral College was created to give voice to all Americans while guarding our nation against corruption. Now, the National Popular Vote interstate compact is threatening to eliminate Alaskan voices on the national stage.”

    The upcoming 45-minute event begins at 1 p.m. and features Alaska Policy Forum’s Sarah Montalbano and a representative from Save Our States, a national group that defends the Electoral College tradition.
