Come join the Weld County League of Women Voters and Patrick Rosenstiel of the National Popular Vote to learn more about the campaign to ensure that every person’s vote for the presidency is equal. Refreshments will be served. Patrick Rosenstiel presently serves as senior consultant to the National Popular Vote campaign. As CEO of Ainsley Shea, a Twin Cities-based public affairs firm with a worldwide impact, Rosenstiel is a nationally recognized figure on the topic of National Popular Vote. The National Popular Vote would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The bill ensures that every vote, in every state, will matter in every presidential election. The National Popular Vote bill has been enacted by 16 jurisdictions possessing 196 electoral votes, and will go into effect when enacted by states possessing a majority of the electoral votes—that is, enough to elect a President (270 of 538). Colorado passed the National Popular Vote bill in the 2019 legislative session, and Governor Polis signed it into law on March 15, 2019. In November, 2020 Colorado voters will be asked to confirm that they are committed to a popular vote for the presidency.
