LWVCC actively supports The Floridians for National Popular Vote movement. Help us make every vote count.
The National Popular Vote law instructs each state’s electors to vote for the Presidential candidate who captures the most votes in the entire United States. NPV legislation does not require a constitutional amendment.
The NPV bill will take effect when enacted into law by states possessing 270 electoral votes (a majority of the nation’s 538) . As of June 1, 2020, this legislation has been signed into law by 15 state governors from both parties, representing 196 electoral votes, or 73% of the required amount.
Once in effect, the NPV law will guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who wins the popular vote. The bill would ensure that every vote will be equal throughout the U.S., regardless of where you live, and that every vote, in every state, will matter in every presidential election.
