Defend the Electoral College in Nevada

In 2023, the Nevada Legislature passed AJR 6, attempting to put the National Popular Vote interstate compact in the state Constitution. This highly unusual process was taken to avoid a veto by Gov. Joe Lombardo (former Gov. Steve Sisolak previously vetoed a normal NPV bill). If AJR 6 passes the Legislature again in 2025, it will go to voters in 2026.

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.

AJR 6 seeks to destroy all this. It would enter Nevada into an interstate compact and change how the state’s presidential electors are chosen. State election officials would ignore Nevada voters and give away the state’s 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.

So far, 17 states with 209 electoral votes have passed NPV, putting the compact 77% of the way to hijacking the Electoral College.

Legislators should protect Nevada voters and oppose the NPV scheme.
