The Electoral Process and Political Leadership
This Bill of Rights in Action examines issues related to elections and political leadership. The first article looks at the election of 1824, which had no winner in the electoral college and had to be decided in the House of Representatives. The second article explores how the Roman Republic set up dictators from time to time to solve political problems. The third article examines why so many people don't vote in the United States.
