National Popular Vote Interview
Many in the United States deem the current electoral college system flawed. The US presidential elections work based on a system called the electoral college. The electoral college system collects electoral votes nationwide. Each state receives a specific number of electoral votes. The presidential candidate who wins the most electoral votes becomes the President. But electoral votes don’t work on a one-vote-one-point system. Instead, a state can have a significantly lower number of voters and carry a similar weight to a state with a much higher number of voters.
National Popular Vote is dedicated to creating a popular vote for presidential elections to challenge the current electoral college system in the United States.
Find out how the National Popular Vote wants to change the political power in the US by introducing a new point-scoring system in the Presidential election race.
