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!
