Event Description:

Guest Speaker: LWVMP member Alice Stambaugh 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.
