What is NPV?
Isn’t it time electors are guided by the majority of Americans who agree on the person who should lead the nation?
All public officials in the United states are elected by popular vote except two—the President and Vice President. The National Popular Vote means that the President and Vice President would be elected by a majority of all Americans—without regard to which state they live in—making this consistent with elections for all other public officials in the United States. Contrary to what many people think, no Constitutional amendment is needed to make this happen.
A National Popular Vote would eliminate the “winner-take-all” practice prevalent in most states, which invalidates the popular votes of millions of Americans—sometimes the majority, in fact. National Popular Vote legislation works within the framework of the Constitution, preserving the electoral system and guaranteeing the Presidency to the person whom the majority of Americans agree should lead our country.
HOW CLOSE ARE WE?

The national movement currently looks like this:

- Total 196 electoral votes secured
- Need 270 votes to elect the President
