Eighth graders debate the electoral college

As part of the eighth grade election unit Friday, students debated whether the electoral college should be abolished.

The team of Audrey Hampton, captain, Ryan Ball, Quincy Logan, and Morgan Wilson advocated eliminating the electoral college and replacing it with direct popular vote for the president, while the team consisting of Ilah Wallace, captain, Sarah Peterson, Taylor Robinson, and Amy Walser, favored keeping the electoral college.
