Electoral College

Rhode Island Brings US More Than Halfway to Overruling Electoral College

A compact between several states will award their electoral votes to the popular vote once they have enough to secure the election


Thanks to Rhode Island, the United States is closer than ever to getting rid of the Electoral College.

Recently, the state signed the National Popular Vote interstate compact, which, when active, will guarantee that all of Rhode Island's electoral votes go to the winner of the popular vote in all 50 states.
