Philosophy Club to sponsor panel discussion of electoral system

Add to Calendar

The Northwest Missouri State University Philosophy Club will sponsor a panel discussion and question-answer session with political science faculty to discuss the rationale of the United States electoral system.

The public is invited to attend the panel from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, in the J.W. Jones Student Union Ballroom.

The panel will consist of Northwest faculty members Daniel Smith, Dr. Robert Dewhirst, Dr. David Jerome and Dr. Timothy Haglund.

“The United States is undergoing a political revolution. However, the U.S electoral system is still puzzling to many politically active members of society,” Philosophy Club President Nick McMahon said. “With the upcoming U.S. presidential election, the purpose of this panel is to raise awareness of how the system works and to answer questions about the electoral system itself.”
