About Save Our States

Save Our States is the one group dedicated to defending the Electoral College from the dangerous National Popular Vote campaign, which would nullify the Electoral College without a constitutional amendment.

In 2008, states worth 38 electoral votes signed on to NPV. At that pace, it would have taken effect by 2016.

Recognizing this threat to our republic, attorney and legal scholar Trent England created Save Our States in 2009. Working with author Tara Ross and election policy expert Sean Parnell, Save Our States became the only organized opposition to NPV.

Save Our States experts have testified at dozens of hearings and visited with legislators from Juneau to Augusta to Sacramento. They have convinced many legislators—even former sponsors of NPV—to become defenders of the Electoral College.

If not for the work of Save Our States, NPV would already have claimed control of presidential elections resulting in a constitutional crisis.

What We Do

Save Our States provides experts to meet with legislators, appear in the media, write articles, and speak to civic organizations. Our work educates policymakers and the public about the genius of the American Founders, the importance of the Electoral College, and the dangers of NPV.

Save Our States has worked on the ground in 35 states. NPV has failed in at least 24 states because of our educational efforts. From 2012 to 2018, Save Our States defeated NPV in almost every state where they pushed their plan.

Today, even more is required to stop, roll back, and ultimately defeat NPV. Save Our States is increasing our efforts ... but we need your help. Support us in this fight!
