Wednesday, September 13, 2017
9:30 a.m.
The Terraces in the Monaco Lounge. The Terraces is located about half a block west of 16th Street on Morten Ave (which is about half way between Northern and Dunlap.) Parking on the south side of Morten in front of the Terraces, across the street, or in front of an office building a bit further west. LWVMP Phoenix Community Team at the Terraces Meeting Sept. 13. Wednesday, September 13 - Guest Speaker LWVMP member John Purchase will speak on the National Popular Vote Compact.

The current Electoral College system, grounded in state laws which allocate electoral votes on a winner-take-all basis, leads presidential candidates to concentrate their resources on voters in a handful of swing states, relegating the vast majority of the country to spectator status.

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact would change this, guaranteeing the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Plan to attend the Sept. 13 meeting to find out: what NPV is, how it will work, how likely it is to take effect in the near future, and why we should not try to eliminate the Electoral College at this time despite the LWV positions statement to that effect.

All LWVMP members and anyone interested in public policy and fair voting is encouraged to attend. ALL LWV MEMBERS WELCOME!
