National popular vote bill gets final approval in Delaware

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Lawmakers have given final approval for Delaware to give its Electoral College presidential votes to whoever wins the national popular vote, not Delaware's vote.

The House voted 24-17 on Thursday to join 11 other Democratic-leaning states in a popular-vote compact. If the Democratic governors in Delaware, Colorado and New Mexico each sign their respective bills, the compact would have 189 of the 270 electoral college votes needed to elect the president.

Very interesting. Really a selfless decision on the part of some of the states.

Colorado governor signs national popular vote bill into law

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed into law Friday a bill that would award the state’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote.

Polis signed the measure after both chambers of the state’s legislature passed the bill last month along party lines, with Democrats pulling heavily for the measure.
