The presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote should be president – period.
One person, one vote should mean that everyone’s vote counts equally. Our system for electing the president is broken because it makes some people’s vote count more than others. The result is the president focuses more on issues important to just those voters and states, and not those of us in Colorado. Plus, under the current system, two of our last three presidents lost the national popular vote, and still became president. That’s just not right.
In America, every voter deserves to be treated equally, no matter what state they live in or what political party they belong to.
Vote YES on the National Popular Vote ballot measure to ensure that every vote is counted equally.
“Living in a democracy should mean “one person, one vote” and that everyone’s vote counts equally. The League of Women Voters of Colorado is proud to support Yes on National Popular Vote because no matter where you live or what political party you belong to, your vote should count, and count equally.”
