Confused About Our Country's Election Process?

The League Of Women Voters of Brookhaven, along with the Patchogue-Medford Library, is presenting an informative talk which will explain primaries, delegates, conventions, and the process by which presidential candidates are selected. Two Long Island professors will explain the details of our sometimes confusing process.

Neil P. Buffett is Assistant Professor of History at Suffolk County Community College and holds several degrees in History and Political Science.
Nicholas P. Giordano is Professor for Political Science, also at S.C.C.C., and also holds several degrees.
