    “The League of Women Voters Greater Verde Valley has invited National Popular Vote advocate Constantin Querard to present “National Popular Vote Compact Fully Explained” .

    The recent Presidential election has once again thrust the Electoral College into the spotlight with calls to eliminate the Electoral College and allow for direct election of the President ensuring that the person who wins the popular vote will become President. While elimination of the Electoral College is a long shot if not impossible, the National Popular Vote Compact bill has been introduced in state legislatures and could serve to achieve the national popular vote outcome without amending the Constitution. It’s complicated and needs to be understood by voters since it has been introduced in several sessions of the Arizona Legislature, including the current 53rd session.”
