LWVSC Supports LWVUS Position to Abolish the Electoral College

The LWVSC supports the position of the League of Women Voters of the United States to abolish the electoral college.
Position In Brief: 


The League of Women Voters of the United States believes that the direct-popular-vote method for electing the President and Vice-President is essential to representative government.  Therefore, it is the League's position that the electoral college should be abolished.  The League supports a constitutional amendment to accomplish this but in the interim supports the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) as an acceptable way to achieve the goal of direct popular vote for election of president until the Electoral College can be abolished.
