Elections: How they Work and How they are Remembered

February 15, 2022, 4 – 6 p.m. EST (VIRTUAL)

Join the McConnell Center for an engaging learning opportunity about elections and the Electoral College. Learn the past and present purpose of the Electoral College and how it functions. Then examine electoral artifacts from the McConnell-Chao Archives and Kentucky Historical Society collection to understand elections from a state and national perspective.
