Replace the Electoral College with a National Popular Vote

This petition had 311 supporters

It is fundamental to democracy: the candidate with the most votes wins. Yet twice since 2000, the candidate with the most votes for President has lost. The good news is that we can make 2016 the last election in which the popular vote loser wins the presidency – and we can do it without amending the Constitution.  

We can replace the Electoral College with a national popular vote through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Under the Compact, states agree to cast their electoral votes for the national popular vote winner - instead of the winner of their state. Once states with a total of 270 electoral votes approve, the Compact becomes effective.

Through the National Popular Vote Compact, the United States can elect a President by popular vote as early as 2020. This is not a pipe dream – states with a combined 165 electoral votes have already enacted it. But in order for the Compact to take effect, and a truly national election to take place, additional states with a combined 105 electoral votes must sign on.  

If you live in one of the 40 states that have not yet joined, tell your state legislators and governor that you support the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
