Spotlight on the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact in Florida

Learn about electing our President via the national popular vote and our education, advocacy, and legislative goals

The League of Women Voters of Florida believes that the President of the United States should be elected as is every other local, state and national public official—by popular vote.  Enacting the bipartisan National Popular Vote Interstate Compact will ensure that every Floridian’s vote counts—and counts equally—in national elections.  States that enact the Compact pledge to award their Electoral votes to the candidate that wins the national popular vote.

We oppose the “winner-take-all rule” and the inequities in the Electoral College formula that make the votes of millions of Americans—and Floridians—meaningless.  We advocate for using the provisions of the U.S. Constitution that gives states exclusive control over instructing their electors and that encourages states to enter into interstate compacts. Electing the president by popular vote has received support from conservatives to liberals and the majority of American voters, including Floridians.

We are interested in educating voters and legislators about NPVIC and its significance to Florida and in having legislation heard, considered, voted on and passed in the Florida Legislature by 2020 so that the voices of Floridians are just as important as the votes of every other American in all future Presidential elections.
