The Electoral College is an important institution that elects our President. In 2010 the New Mexico State House passed Memorial 056 , which asks the Secretary of State to study and report on how the current Electoral College system and the national popular vote system compare. Absent from the memorial is public discussion and debate about the Electoral College and its effectiveness in modern society. Therefore, the Center for the Study of Voting, Elections and Democracy (C-SVED) has taken this occasion to further explore the Electoral College and how it works by engaging the public in this important topic. This forum provides an opportunity for the public to voice its opinion on what policy issues should be presented to the state government.

The Citizen Panel will meet three times, once a month in August, September and October. The point of each meeting will be for panel members to learn about the Electoral College and to discuss the implications of the current system and alternative systems.
