    Deciphering the National Popular Vote

    presented by Suzanne Low


    Most Americans, when asked, respond yes to the question “Should the U.S. President be the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the entire United States?” But that is not our current state-by- state winner-take-all system. The National Popular Vote (NPV) law, which works with the electoral college and does not require a constitutional amendment, has been signed into law by governors of both parties in 16 states and the District of Columbia, representing 205 (76%) of the votes necessary to implement this legislation. When states representing 270 electoral votes (the number needed to elect the President) have passed the law, the National Popular Vote will go into effect. When effective, it will guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and D.C. combined. The law will ensure that every vote will be equal throughout the U.S., regardless of where you live, and that every vote, in every state, will matter in every presidential election. Our goal in Florida is to pass this law by 2024.
