What is the Electoral College and why should we defend it?
The Electoral College unifies, moderates, and protects American politics. It is part of what makes the United States a republic. For more than 230 years, the United States has enjoyed exceptional success with a system of constitutional and representative government. One reason is the Electoral College.
What is the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and Why Is It a Threat?
Today, a San Francisco-based lobbying organization called National Popular Vote (NPV) is pushing state legislation that would nullify the Electoral College without a constitutional amendment.
The plan has states commit to ignore their own voters and instead give away their electoral votes based on the national popular vote. By doing this, they hope to manipulate the Constitution and, in effect, nullify the Electoral College.
