Al Gore and others are calling for the end of the electoral college as we know it. Several states agree and have passed legislation favoring this.
“I really do now think it’s time to change that. It’s always tough to amend the Constitution and risky to do so, but there is a very interesting movement under way that takes it state by state, that may really have a chance of succeeding,” says Gore.
National Popular Vote is working to eliminate our anachronistic electoral college. Several states have already signed on.
The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the entire United States. The bill ensures that every vote, in every state, will matter in every presidential election.
he National Popular Vote law has been enacted by states possessing 132 electoral votes — 49% of the 270 electoral votes needed to activate it.
