Campaign to overturn Colorado's national popular vote law submits record number of signatures

Colorado voters are probably going to have the final say on whether to keep electing presidents the way we always have or give the candidate who wins the national popular vote all nine of the state’s Electoral College votes.

Coloradans Vote, a group hoping put the question to voters in November 2020, submitted more than enough signatures to qualify for the ballot to the Secretary of State’s Office Thursday afternoon.


The compact says each state promises to give their Electoral Colleges votes to the winner of the national popular vote no matter who won in each state. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have joined the compact for a total of 196 electoral votes. That’s less than the 270 votes needed to elect a president, and the compact — as well as the law in Colorado — won’t go into effect until it clears that threshold.

“People feel that giving away your electoral votes without a vote of the people is overstepping,” Wilson said.

1. Hello Colorado.. we went for Hillary as did the majority of Americans.

our votes basically didn't count.

I can see how people would want to overturn this law, but what really needs to go is the electoral college. Let's have the same passion about that.
