The constitutional power of the states is under constant attack. Why? Because states are essential to defending limited government, maintaining checks and balances, and even protecting our national security.

Defend your state today:

Electoral College

Defending the Electoral College

The Electoral College unifies, moderates, and protects American politics. It is part of what makes the United States a federal republic. For more than 230 years, the United States has enjoyed exceptional success with constitutional and representative government. One reason is the Electoral College.


Protecting honest elections

Whether an election is for presidential electors or school board members, the system should be transparent and verifiably honest. We oppose proposals like ranked-choice voting that make elections needlessly complicated and support policies that help voters trust the process.


Promoting voter participation

The lowest turnout elections are those held “off cycle” at odd times of the year. These obscure elections often increase the power of insiders at the expense of everyone else. This is wrong and unnecessary. The easiest way for states to increase voter participation is by consolidating election days.


Protecting jobs and savings

Our economy is threatened by a campaign called ESG, which claims to promote responsible Environmental, Social, and Governance policies in businesses. Consumers’ Research, founded in 1929 to educate and protect consumers, says ESG should really stand for Erasing Savings and Growth. States must act—and many are—to protect jobs and savings from ESG.

Foreign Threats

Standing up to foreign threats

From Chinese Communist Party–backed businesses buying American infrastructure to Russian and North Korean state-sponsored hackers, we face too many serious threats simply to wait for action from Washington, DC. States have the power to protect agriculture, ports, communications infrastructure, and educational institutions from foreign interference.

Who we are

Saving our republic by saving our states

Save Our States was founded in 2009 to defend the Electoral College from the dangerous National Popular Vote campaign, which would nullify the Electoral College without a constitutional amendment.

Since that time, we have expanded our work to help states improve elections and use their power to defend our republic. Save Our States provides experts to meet with legislators, write articles, speak to civic organizations, and appear in the media.
