The National Popular Vote

Freeman Ng, a “Writer, poet, software engineer,” left a comment on the post of Feburary 10, RepublicaNazi’s which was immediately approved. It is so important I decided to write this post tonight before heading to dreamland.

“The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Explanation It has been enacted into law in 11 states with 165 electoral votes (CA, DC, HI, IL, MA, MD, NJ, NY, RI, VT, WA). This interstate compact will take effect when enacted by states with 105 more electoral votes. It has passed at least one house in 12 additional states with 96 electoral votes (AR, AZ, CO, CT, DE, ME, MI, NC, NM, NV, OK, OR) and been approved unanimously by committee votes in two additional states with 27 electoral votes (GA, MO). The bill has recently been passed by a 40–16 vote in the Republican-controlled Arizona House, 28–18 in Republican-controlled Oklahoma Senate, 57–4 in Republican-controlled New York Senate, 34-23 in Democratic-controlled Oregon House, and 26-16 in the New Mexico Senate.”(https://www.nationalpopularvote.com/)

I will admit to being completely unaware of the movement, or the website. I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to Mr. Ng! Please check out his extremely interesting blog which contains his new haiku collection. https://plus.google.com/114058914080826728768
