The indispensable Electoral College

As we head toward what seems to be both the most important and chaotic presidential election of our lifetimes, the Rio Grande Foundation has joined with the Heritage Foundation to distribute a booklet that illustrates exactly how the Electoral College works and why it is so important to American elections and sparsely-populated states like New Mexico.

Here you can download the booklet and explore information about the Electoral College. The Rio Grande Foundation also has a limited number of booklets that we can distribute to friends and supporters. Contact us at: or 505-264-6090.
