Ask candidates running for office in CT to support the National Popular Vote

This petition had 3,507 supporters

Candidates for state office need to hear from voters about what's important to them. This is a great time to ask if candidates will support the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact if elected.

The Compact is a nonpartisan solution to make everyone’s vote for president matter—regardless of whether they live in blue, red or battleground states—and to make the winner the candidate with the most votes, just the way we elect members to the CT General Assembly and statewide offices. So far, 10 states and the District of Columbia, with a total of 165 electoral votes, have joined the Compact (which goes into effect when there are 270 electoral votes represented, the number needed to win the presidency).

The measure has been received favorably in the CT General Assembly going back to 2009. With 68 co-sponsors (more than ever before) and an unprecedented grassroots effort in 2017, the NPV bill, H.B. 5434, was just a few votes short of passing. 

By signing this petition, we can demonstrate to candidates who are exploring or running for office that Connecticut wants to #MakeEveryVoteMatter. The more candidates that pledge to support a National Popular Vote, the closer we'll get to passing the Compact and electing the presidential candidate who gets the most votes in all 50 states.
