National Popular Vote
March 22 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The National Popular Vote (NPV), a bipartisan effort supported by the League of Women Voters, Common Cause, and other organizations, is committed to ensuring that the presidential candidate who receives the largest number of popular votes across the country will become president. The NPV preserves the Electoral College, state control of elections and the power of the states to control how the president is elected. The NPV ensures that every vote counts equally and that every state will receive attention from the candidates. So far the bill has been adopted by 15 states and DC, for a total of 196 electoral votes, and needs an additional 74 electoral votes to go into effect. (See map of states here.) It has already passed one chamber in North Carolina.
Eileen Reavey, National Grassroots Director of the National Popular Vote, will be the guest presenter at the next League of Women Voters of Henderson County meeting on Monday, March 22nd at 6:30 pm. Co-sponsors are LWV Asheville-Buncombe County, AAUW, Carolina Jews for Justice, Interfaith Initiative for Social Justice, DemocracyNC, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Hendersonville, and El Centro. Register for this program here.
