Support the National Popular Vote Initiative!
Our recent presidential elections have demonstrated the disparity between how America is voting and the outcome reached by the electoral college. These concerns were particularly important when the 2016 election was won in the electoral college despite a deficit of 3 million votes. It has become increasingly critical to award votes in such a way that every vote counts and is accorded the same weight. You can take action to help ensure that every vote counts!
Here are some things you can do to promote the National Popular Vote Initiative, a measure that, if approved by enough states, would replace the electoral college with a popular vote for presidential elections.
1) Watch this video and tweet the link to help others learn about the NPVI.Post to Twitter
2) Donate to National Popular Vote to support their work of fighting for equal representation - they’ve already gotten over 60% of the states they need to pass this great policy.DONATE
3) Contact your state legislators & ask them to support the National Popular Vote Initiative.
