Colorado’s Votes for President of the United States should go to the candidate who gets the most votes IN COLORADO
DO YOU WANT CALIFORNIA TO DECIDE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT?
Politicians in Denver voted to give our votes for President to states like California, New York, and Illinois. That’s wrong.
The citizens of Colorado rose up in opposition. Nearly 228,000 Coloradans signed petitions, exercising a “citizens veto” – last used in 1932 – thereby suspending the law until voters weigh in on the November 2020 ballot.
Now, we have to work to educate our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers. Our message is simple, but we face a flood of out-of-state money. Supporters of National Popular Vote are flooding Colorado with money. Out-of-state billionaires have already contributed millions of dollars to try and convince Coloradans to pass National Popular Vote. We need to stop them.
Please help! Share our message far and wide. Inform your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors. The National Popular Vote law would not have been suspended without an uprising from Colorado citizens. Likewise, we will not succeed in defeating National Popular Vote this November against well-funded, out-of-state interests without the efforts of voters like you!
THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
IS OUR CURRENT SYSTEM
The Electoral College ensures that states with smaller populations still have an important role in electing the President. That is why each state has a number of Presidential Electors equal to the number of Representatives that state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, plus two for the two Senators each state has in the U.S. Senate.
Colorado has 9 votes in the Electoral College (7 Representatives + 2 Senators). These electors cast their vote for President based on the candidate who receives the most votes in their state.*
This ensures that the minority always has a voice by allowing smaller, less populated states to have a more proportionate voice in electing our President.
*Nebraska and Maine award their electoral votes proportionally, based on Congressional districts.
HIGHLY POPULATED STATES WANT THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE
Proposals to skirt the current Electoral College system by ignoring a state’s individual vote results are dangerous. The National Popular Vote elects a President and a Vice-President based on the candidate who receives the most votes nationally. This means that states like California, New York, Florida, and Illinois have a greater influence than other states, because large metropolitan areas like New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago have a disproportionate population, and voice over states like Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, and North Carolina in electing the President of the United States.
