NPV’s Arkansas numbers don’t add up

National Popular Vote is pushing legislation onto the agendas of 45 state legislatures in 2010. Five have already signed on the dotted line.

NPV prides itself on support from numerous legislators and an overwhelming majority of the voters they poll. Yet they seem, well, let’s say factually challenged.

Last February, the Arkansas House passed the NPV bill (HB 1339, it died in a Senate committee).

According to NPV’s webpage, Reps. Bill Abernathy, Toni Bradford, Stephanie Flowers, Wilhemina Lewellen, Bruce Maloch, David Powers, and Gene Shelby support NPV.

The roll call for HB 1339 indicates otherwise. All of these legislators voted against NPV.

Cross-check the names here and here. Accuracy matters—especially in the way we elect our president.

Why Save our States?

The genius of the United States of America: we are both United and States. The American system of states is Federalism. One part of it is the Electoral College, the state-by-state way we elect the President of the United States.

Some 'reformers' want to unravel our system of states. The Freedom Foundation’s Save Our States Project is dedicated to preserving these structures for the sake of liberty. Find out more and join us.
