Rhode Island Gov. Chafee Puts National Popular Vote Over the Halfway Mark

PROVIDENCE, RI (RPRN) 07/15/13 — Governor Lincoln Chafee recently signed National Popular Vote into law, making Rhode Island the 10th jurisdiction – nine states and Washington, DC – to enact the bill.

With the addition of Rhode Island’s four electoral votes, National Popular Vote, the non-partisan electoral reform movement, has now amassed 136 – or 50.4% – of the 270 electoral votes needed to bring it into effect.

“It is extremely encouraging,” says Barry Fadem, President of National Popular Vote, “to see small, medium, and large states embracing National Popular Vote in a non-partisan fashion because they understand it will ensure that every voter in every state will matter in every presidential election.”

Under National Popular Vote, enacting states pledge their electors to the presidential candidate who wins the most popular votes in all 50 states.
