Right now, most states
award their electoral votes to the winner in their state, so candidates have no
reason to campaign where they’re significantly ahead or behind. Instead, they
only compete in a handful of swing states, effectively ignoring voters in every
other state in the union. We deserve better -- the
National Popular Vote compact.
Not only would it ensure
that the person who actually got more votes wins the presidency, but it would
also let candidates spend time engaging with voters in all 50 states -- big and
small -- instead of just a handful of swing states.Let’s make it happen.
Write to your state legislators today and tell them you support reforming the
Electoral College with National Popular Vote!
