John Koza Hill oped:
The National Popular Vote compact has already been enacted into law by 15 states and the District of Columbia (together possessing 196 electoral votes) and will take effect when enacted by states with 74 more electoral votes (for a total of 270).
After the compact comes into effect, every voter in all 50 states and D.C. will acquire a direct vote in the choice of all of the presidential electors from all of the states that enacted the compact. The presidential candidate supported by the most voters in all 50 states and D.C. will thereby win a majority of the presidential electors in the Electoral College (at least 270), and therefore become president.
It is time to immunize our presidential election system from the results of accidental or intentional events deciding the presidency.
