Colorado State Senate Passes National Popular Vote Bill

On January 29, Colorado’s Senate passed a bill that would add Colorado to the list of 11 states plus D.C. to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Currently, the Compact has 172 electors that will be pledged to the winner of the national popular vote if states with a total of 270 electoral votes join the Compact.  

The Colorado bill will now go to the state’s House for consideration.  If passed, Colorado would add its 9 electoral votes to the tally.
