National Popular Vote

National Popular Vote

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact will guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Compact ensures that every vote, in every state, will matter in every presidential election. The Compact is a state-based approach that preserves the Electoral College, state control of elections, and the power of the states to control how the President is elected.

The League of Women Voters supports this initiative. The General Assembly of Virginia is considering legislation during this session to make Virginia part of this Interstate Compact.

On January 5, the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County hosted a forum on the topic. The two presenters, Nancy Kolb and Ted Fuller, shared their powerpoint slides from the session, available for download here:
