Hitting the road

Last year, in addition to our educational activities in Washington State, Save Our States visited Nevada and was assisted allies in Oregon and Colorado as well. While NPV was signed into law in Washington, it stalled in the other three states as legislators began asking questions and constituents made their voices heard.

So tomorrow I am on the red-eye flight to the Northeast (I hear it’s lovely there this time of year), where I will visit a string of state capitals to educate policymakers and the public about the importance of preserving Federalism and the Electoral College.

I’ll be updating SaveOurStates as I go, though we aren’t releasing many details of the trip in advance. My first two stops are Augusta, Maine, and Montpelier, Vermont. For more regular updates, follow Save Our States on Twitter.

    Thank you for all the work you do and for bringing this important issue to our attention!

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.
