Defending the Electoral College since 2009

National Popular Vote bill introduced in the Maine House of Representatives
Harry Roth • Apr 11, 2023

The National Popular Vote campaign has targeted Maine and its four electoral votes for years. Now a new bill has been introduced in the state House of Representatives (LD1578). If passed, it would give away Maine's electoral votes (based on the nationwide popular vote.) This would give voters in other states, particularly California (where NPV is based), almost total control of Maine’s electoral votes.

A National Popular Vote bill previously passed the Maine Senate in 2019 but was defeated in the House of Representatives. Since then, NPV lobbyists have been active in the state trying to gain support for the compact.
