The presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote should be president – period.
One person, one vote should mean that everyone’s vote counts equally. Our system for electing the president is broken because it makes some people’s vote count more than others. The result is the president focuses more on issues important to just those voters and states, and not those of us in Colorado. Plus, under the current system, two of our last three presidents lost the national popular vote, and still became president. That’s just not right.
In America, every voter deserves to be treated equally, no matter what state they live in or what political party they belong to.
Vote YES on Proposition 113, the National Popular Vote, to ensure that every vote is counted equally.
“Elected officials represent all the people in a democracy, not just those in a few states. A strong democracy makes every vote equal and every voter relevant. The League of Women Voters has supported a national popular vote since 1970 because we believe the most important officeholders of the land – our President and Vice President — should be accountable to all Americans.”
