Yes on Proposition 113

YES on PROPOSITION 113: National Popular Vote

Summary of Proposition 113: The National Popular Vote guarantees the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states. During the 2019 legislative session the Colorado legislature passed, and Governor Polis signed the National Popular Vote into law (SB19-042). Colorado joined with 14 other states and the District of Columbia, together representing 196 electoral votes, in passing the National Popular Vote. The National Popular Vote law will go into effect when enacted by states possessing a majority of the presidential electors—that is, 270 of 538. All the electoral votes from those states will then be awarded to the candidate receiving the most votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Recommendation Rationale: We must fight back against Republican attempts to bolster the Electoral College, an inherently anti-democratic institution since its inception. The NPV compact is a path towards voter empowerment and modernizing our democracy.
