The status of National Popular Vote
The National Popular Vote interstate compact (NPV) is state legislation designed to nullify the Electoral College without changing the Constitution. It has a “trigger”—NPV takes effect if passed by enough states that they control a majority of electoral votes (270 out of 538) and thus the outcome of presidential elections.
Sixteen states and DC have passed NPV legislation, controlling a total of 205 electoral votes (as of May 2023). It has passed in at least one chamber in nine other states, and has been introduced in every state.
