For decades, Maine
has had an
innovate (and unique) system for proportionately distributing its electoral
votes; the National Popular Vote Bill would have gone a step further by strictly
tying electoral votes to the people’s will.
The bill would have gone into effect as soon as “states
possessing a majority of the electoral votes—that is, enough electoral votes to
elect a President (270 of 538),” had signed on, according to National Popular
Vote, Inc., a California-based organization. I guess Maine won’t contribute to that majority.
