National Popular Vote Bill stuck in House - needs to pass by Wed!
Voting for President should be like voting for any major office - the person that gets the most votes wins - NOT! The outdated Electoral College can skew the vote so that a candidate can win the popular vote and lose the race (this happened in 2000 and 2004).
If you haven’t yet sent a message to your Delegates to pass HB 2378, go to http://www.nationalpopularvote.com/wv to write your delegate(s) now and ask them to support the National Popular Vote. It’s easy and only takes a minute to do!
The bill passed out of committee last week and is on second reading on the House floor. It needs to be taken up for a passage vote by Wednesday to keep moving.
Our state could be the eighth state to join this agreement to send our Electoral College (EC) votes to the presidential candidate that wins the majority nationwide. Let’s bring our presidential elections into the 21st century!
