Nonpartisan Resources for Understanding the Electoral College

In case you’re wondering about the 2020 timeline for the electoral college or are curious to learn more about the electoral college, here are some publications from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) which you may find useful. The CRS serves as nonpartisan shared staff to congressional committees and members of Congress, and their reports are well-organized, easy to understand, and freely available to the public via the CRS web site.

For further research, consider consulting eBooks and articles in our library databases such as Gale eBooks, Gale in Context: U.S. History, Gale PowerSearch, Explora, and JSTOR. School logins for these resources and instructions for how to set up a personal MyJSTOR account are in the Resources folder of the Dragons Research group in Schoology.
