Posted on January 14, 2008Gov. Corzine signed the National Popular Vote (NPV) bill into law last week, ushering New Jersey into the interstate compact to change the way the president is elected, nine months after Maryland enacted the same law.
The NPV compact will require an Electoral College majority of 270 electors to take effect. In addition to Maryland's 10 votes and the Garden State's 15, all eyes now turn to Illinois, where the bill was sent to the governor for signing last week as well.
Will America soon be 46 electors closer to more democratic presidential elections? Stay tuned!
