As the Secretary of State’s office prepares its report, 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. Ultimately, C-SVED believes this is an opportunity for public input as to what policy considerations ought to be presented to key policy makers in 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. From these meetings, C-SVED will issue a report which panel members will be asked and encouraged to sign in concurrence, or in dissent, as a way to build some knowledge and interest around this issue. The report will be publicly released by the Center

The panels will be held:

In Albuquerque on August 31, 2011 from 10:00am to 1:00pm in UNM’s Continuing Education Conference Center Room H 

In Santa Fe on September 28, 2011 from 10:00am to 1:00pm in the Joseph Montoya Building, 1100 S. St. Francis (near Cordova and St. Francis) in the Bid Room in Santa Fe.

 

In Las Cruces on October 13, 2011 from 10:00am to 1:00pm (Location TBA)
