The Risks and Remedies for Fair Elections with Ned Foley (Recast)

Last month, the House passed a bill to reform the electoral college. This week, we're revisiting our conversation with Professor Edward Foley, Director of Election Law at Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law. Ned dives in on how Americans elect our federal officers, and how the law and the courts have ruled on voting; from naming electors to deciding Bush v. Gore in 2000.

Professor Edward Foley is the Ebersold Chair in Constitutional Law at The Ohio State University and director of the school's election law program:
