Women's league town hall discusses national popular vote

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT News)-- The League of Women voters held a town hall meeting on Monday night to discuss the national popular vote.

The national popular vote law, signed by Governor Polis, ties Colorado into the national vote compact, which would guarantee that the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote across all 50 states will always receive our state electoral votes.

The group says that Monday night was aimed at helping voters understand the facts.

“We received over 224,000 signatures statewide which made us eligible for the ballot in November of 2020 and right now we're just working on our education process," says Mesa County Commissioner, Rose Pugliese.

"When every single vote in every single state is important in every single election, there's no such thing as small states and big states. There really are individual voters in every single state," says National Spokesman for the National Popular Vote Compact, Ray Haynes.

Voters will decide on repealing the law come November 2020.
The compact currently includes 15 states and Washington D.C.
