Today, Washington state may follow Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland and New Jersey to become the 5th state to sign the National Popular Vote bill into law.
According to this report, Washington Governor Chris Gregoire is expected to sign the National Popular Vote bill sometime today.
Under the National Popular Vote bill, all of a state’s electoral votes would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The bill would take effect only when enacted, in identical form, by states possessing a majority of the electoral votes (270 of 538). Read more at www.nationalpopularvote.org.
