WATCH: How to Abolish The Electoral College Forever



While we resist Donald Trump, we also need to make sure our democracy doesn’t ever again elect a candidate who loses the popular vote. We must abolish the electoral college.

Already 10 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws to reform the system, but we need more to join.

Watch this video to see how it’s done.

How do we abolish the electoral college

While we resist Donald Trump, we also need to make sure our democracy doesn't ever again elect a candidate who loses the popular vote. We must abolish the electoral college. Already 10 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws to reform the system, but we need more to join.

Without people like you fighting to keep their country and representatives in check, this country, as we all have seen now, will continue to fall into the hands of the 1% and disproportionately marginalize minorities and take advantage of the status quo that sweeps democracy under the carpet.

A simple script to use when speaking to your representative.

Hello. I live in [U.S. State], and wanted to know if our state has joined the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact? (If not, explain what it is) I would like to urge [your State Representative’s name] to support joining to keep our electoral college from disregarding the popular vote in elections.

Let’s keep the pressure on our city, state and federal government officials and show them that they were put in office by the People, for the People.

It’s time that we say “Enough is Enough!”

    There have been hundreds of unsuccessful proposed amendments to modify or abolish the Electoral College – more than any other subject of Constitutional reform.
    To abolish the Electoral College would need a constitutional amendment, and could be stopped by states with as little as 3% of the U.S. population.

    Instead, pragmatically, the National Popular Vote bill is 61% of the way to guaranteeing the majority of Electoral College votes and the presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country, by changing state winner-take-all laws (not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but later enacted by 48 states), without changing anything in the Constitution, using the built-in method that the Constitution provides for states to make changes.

    All voters would be valued equally in presidential elections, no matter where they live.
    Candidates, as in other elections, would allocate their time, money, polling, organizing, and ad buys roughly in proportion to the population

    Every vote, everywhere, for every candidate, would be politically relevant and equal in every presidential election.
    No more distorting, crude, and divisive and red and blue state maps of predictable outcomes, that don’t represent any minority party voters within each state.
    No more handful of ‘battleground’ states (where the two major political parties happen to have similar levels of support) where voters and policies are more important than those of the voters in 38+ predictable states that have just been ‘spectators’ and ignored after the conventions.

    The bill would take effect when enacted by states with a majority of the electoral votes—270 of 538.
    All of the presidential electors from the enacting states will be supporters of the presidential candidate receiving the most popular votes among all 50 states (and DC)—thereby guaranteeing that candidate with an Electoral College majority.

    The bill was approved in 2016 by a unanimous bipartisan House committee vote in both Georgia (16 electoral votes) and Missouri (10).
    Since 2006, the bill has passed 35 state legislative chambers in 23 rural, small, medium, large, red, blue, and purple states with 261 electoral votes.
    The bill has been enacted by 11 small, medium, and large jurisdictions with 165 electoral votes – 61% of the way to guaranteeing the presidency to the candidate with the most popular votes in the country
