Democracy Forum — Small-state Bias in the Federal Government: Is This Democracy?

Friday, February 17, 2023
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

LWV-Downeast hosts a monthly radio program on democracy in cooperation with WERU FM. 

This month we'll have a conversation about the ways in which rural states are over-represented in the federal government, from the U.S. Senate to the Electoral College, the Supreme Court, and possibly even the U.S. House. How has the come about; how far can it go? How does this affect Maine? If rural states rule, why are rural states not thriving? Where is this heading, and what can or should be done about it? Learn more about the show here.
