Last week, Maryland passed a law that would give its Electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote if states representing a majority of the Electoral College do the same. The idea, which is backed by about 300+ state legislators who have introduced the law in 47 states, is to make presidential campaigns (and, hopefully, presidents) care more about the concerns of “blue” and “red” states, and not just to swing states. CommonCause has done a lot work on this.
In Massachusetts, the bill is backed here by Senators Joan Menard and Robert Havern and Representative Marty Walsh and Charlie Murphy, along with 24 co-sponsors. Because the bill only goes into effect if states representing a majority of the country pass it, it does not call for unilateral disarmament on the part of any state.
