There is a sweeping movement underway with the aim to CHANGE THE WAY WE ELECT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. The goal is to replace our current electoral college with a National Popular Vote. Under the National Popular Vote bill, all of the state’s electoral votes would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The bill has been enacted by 9 jurisdictions possessing 132 electoral votes — 49% of the 270 necessary to activate it (VT, MD, WA, IL, NJ, DC, MA, CA, HI). Bills have been introduced in both legislative bodies in St. Paul this last session.

Come hear both sides of the argument and become well informed on this important subject !


In Favor of the National Popular Vote: Pat Rosenstiel
