the most votes wins

The electoral college is an antiquated system. But it's more than just inconvenient – it's impeding upon voter representation.

The last two Republican presidents have been elected after losing the popular vote. Trump received only 46% of the vote, and yet, because of the Electoral College structure, he's now president.

It's time to ensure the candidate who received the most votes is actually elected. Wild idea, huh?

We're at a crossroads. Either we continue using the current system for the sake of tradition, or we put in the work to create a more representative electorate.

How? With the National Popular Vote Compact.

Sign the petition to all 50 state governments: Join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact so that in the United States we can finally elect our presidents by national popular vote.

It's a simple concept that could make a world of difference.
