“Connecticut lawmakers vote to join popular vote pact”


Connecticut’s General Assembly has voted to join a group of states that want to pool their Electoral College votes for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.

The Senate on Saturday voted 21-14 to enter the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. The bill already cleared the House of Representatives and now moves to Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who supports the concept.

Connecticut would be the 12th jurisdiction — a combination of 11 states and the District of Columbia — to join the pact.
