Defend the Electoral College in Minnesota

Minnesota joined the NPV interstate compact in 2023. With bipartisan opposition to NPV, legislative leaders bundled it into an omnibus spending bill. This forced many legislators to vote for it despite their concerns. Given that history, it’s time to reconsider and repeal NPV.

The Electoral College provides checks and balances that safeguard our presidential elections. Our constitutional election process ensures that voters in each state have their own voice. It also reduces threats from fraud or mistakes, and keeps states in charge of elections.

NPV seeks to destroy all this. It is an interstate compact, passed as state legislation, to change how presidential electors are chosen. States would ignore their own voters and give away their electoral votes based on the national popular vote. It takes effect if passed in states that together control 270 or more electoral votes—a majority that would control who becomes president.

Currently, Minnesota is one of 17 states with 209 electoral votes that have passed NPV, putting the compact 77% of the way to hijacking the Electoral College.

Repealing NPV is done through the normal legislative process, and starts with a legislator filing a bill. Please ask your legislators to reconsider this dangerous, unconstitutional scheme to manipulate elections.
