DEAR EDITOR: You have just a few more days to sign the petition to bring the National Popular Vote law to Colorado’s voters. In 2016, as in all the previous years of Colorado’s existence, Colorado’s electors voted for the Presidential candidate who won the most votes in Colorado. In 2019, Colorado’s Democrat legislature passed, and the governor signed, a bill that would instead give Colorado’s electoral votes to the Presidential candidate who got the most votes nationwide. (This new procedure would only occur if sufficient states agreed to adopt this method.)
This means that Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, and a few other cities would control the election of our Presidents because they have the most votes. States’ rights and states’ power would be diminished. There is a petition circulating to bring this change of law to a vote of the people. If you would like to preserve the electoral college as it has been for over 200 years, please take the time to sign this petition. To sign a petition, please visit Coloradansvote.org or contact me as soon as possible.
