There is an honest way for supporters of a nationwide popular vote to eject the Electoral College, and that is to take away its accreditation by way of a constitutional amendment to repeal it. But that would take 2/3 of both houses of Congress and 3/4 of the states, and apparently that task gives opponents of the Electoral College the vapors.Much easier, they think, to perform an end-run on the US Constitution's amendment process through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.Interstate compacts are for regional cooperation in governing the use of river water, for example, or in agreeing that if a nurse in one state passes that state's licensing requirements, other states will accept that nurse's license to practice.Interstate compacts are not for the purpose of subverting the US Constitution.I hate the Electoral College, it's antiquated and obsolete, in my opinion. But I don't support the NPVIC.If people think our politics are divisive now, just wait to see what happens if the NPVIC is adopted by 270 electoral votes' worth of states.So, call Governor Polis' office at 303-866-2471 and tell him to veto senate bill 19-042, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Be sure to mention the bill number! I do, however, like the idea of proportional electoral votes from each state. Winner-take-all is nowhere mentioned in any form in the US Constitution. Maine and Nebraska have the right idea.

That's how it got Jet.com founder Marc Lore, who now lead's Walmart's U.S. e-commerce business.
