Defend the Electoral College in Wisconsin

The Electoral College provides checks and balances that safeguard presidential elections. This 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.

Today, a campaign called National Popular Vote (NPV) wants to destroy all this. Their interstate compact seeks to nullify the Electoral College by changing state laws about choosing presidential electors. 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.
