Here is the open-book exercise that will complete your course work. Each question can be answered in three sentences or less. Some of you had trouble with Canvas on the midterm; feel free to submit this on the regular ccsf message platform. If you do use Canvas, avoid attachments…my computer has trouble accessing them.
1. How many electoral votes are needed to elect a President? How is that number determined? What happens if no candidate reaches that number?
2. The House uses the Rules Committee to set the rules of debate for a bill before the whole House. What does the Senate use (instead of a powerful Rules Committee ) to establish the rules of debate?
3. Why was the Marbury v. Madison decision so important for the U.S. Supreme Court?
