This public forum will present information about the 2012 presidential election in the United States, including a look at the candidates themselves (Barack Obama and Mitt Romney).
The presentation will provide an overview of the Electoral College, the constitutional mechanism that actually elects the U.S. president; an analysis of the role of money and campaign contributions within the American political system; and a broad overview of the issues and policy debates that will likely characterize the national election.
