popular vote

Enough signatures have been gathered to put the national popular vote compact before voters.

The new law allows Colorado to give its Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote for president.

A state-by-state effort to start using the popular vote as the deciding factor in presidential elections is getting some mixed results in the months after Colorado joined the cause.

The leaders of the national popular vote compact are celebrating Oregon’s decision this month to join the group. If the governor approves the change as expected, the Beaver state will become the 15th state to join the initiative.
