Nevada passes National Popular Vote legislation

May 22, 2019

  The move to get rid of the Electoral College is not a new effort, the National Popular Vote movement has been underway for years, but it seems to have picked up momentum since the Democrats began their hissy fit just over two years ago after losing the 2016 election.

  The biggest effort to eliminate the Electoral College is a sneaky little effort called the National Popular Vote movement which seeks to do so without properly changing the Constitution by passing legislation in individual states which would bind that particular state to give its electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote instead of the candidate who won the election in that particular state. When enough states have signed on to this compact the Electoral College will be null and void even though technically it will still be around.

  Nevada has become the latest state to pass National Popular Vote legislation and it is headed to the governor’s desk for a signature. Here is more:

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor.

Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote.

  Nevada will be the 16th state to pass this legislation and Washington DC has already passed it as well. Of course it takes 270 Electoral Votes to win the Presidency and with Nevada on board the National Popular Vote movement now has secured 195 of those votes.

  The movement still has a way to go before it undermines the Constitution, and it probably will not accomplish the goal before 2020, but it is getting closer all the time and it is only a matter of time before it happens.

    The NVSOS is DS, even though the head is a Rep.
    I 🙏 there’s indictments to remove them all.

    I don’t see how this will hold up… The constitution requires the electoral college…but I have not heard anyone opine on this. I know each state can decide how to vote… but the intention is to subvert the Consitutional requirement… not two worry, we have two latest GOPers on the SP court.

      I haven’t heard any experts talk about this either but my opinion is this will work on a technicality because technically the EC will still be in place and yeah, I don’t trust the new justices on the SCOTUS.
