(Worthy News) – The Nevada Senate has approved a bill, pushing to do away with the Electoral College system.
The bill would require electors to cast their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote.
The US Constitution mandates the Electoral College system, giving every state a chance to be heard in presidential elections. The system was enacted by America’s founding fathers to give smaller states more influence compared to the more highly populated states such as New York, Texas and California.
If the bill is signed by the governor, Nevada would join 15 states in the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC). Several states that have enacted the law include Vermont, Maryland and Illinois. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
