No wonder the NPVIC initiative is gaining traction—it’s 63% of the way to becoming the law of the land. For the compact to kick in, enough states have to adopt the bill to total at least 270 electoral votes. So far the compact has 172 votes, including 11 states and the District of Columbia. If NPVIC passes in Florida the initiative would gain 29 more votes. Passage of NPVIC would align the electoral system with the will of the American people for the first time in our nation's history.
NPV meets monthly, Fridays at 11:00 a.m. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm time and place.

We are the advocates for making every vote count in Florida and across the nation!
Palm Beach County's chapter is the NPV spearhead for the LWVUS, leading the way for advocating the National Popular Vote not only here, but also in chapters across the state and across the nation. LWVPBC member Kathleen Crampton is the league's state and national leader for the NPV initiative. She recently won over delegates at the LWVUS at the National Convention, who voted to make NPV a major priority nationally. It was a state-wide effort. Patti Brigham, LWVFL President, brought the full power and strength of Florida’s huge membership base. Karen Wilkerson and the entire Palm Beach delegation were the backbone of the effort to draw attention to our cause, educate delegates and provide useful intelligence and information from other caucuses.

NPV is truly bipartisan!
It’s true! National Popular Vote legislation is neither liberal, nor conservative but bipartisan, supported by many prominent Republicans and Democrats. In fact, polls show that a majority of Americans of both parties support the National Popular Vote and have done so for decades.
