Details

New members are welcome! Become part of the movement to successfully pass the National Popular Vote bill in New Mexico. We are gearing up NOW.

We'll get to know one another in person, plan our actions, and deepen our understanding of the National Popular Vote.

The problem with the U.S. presidential elections is not the Electoral College as such but the state-based "winner-take-all" method of counting the popular votes to begin with.

The difference between the winner-take-all system awarding all of the participating states’ electoral votes to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in each state, and the National Popular Vote doing so for the popular votes from across the entire country, may seem minor, but in reality this difference has caused stunningly large voting inequalities and other pronounced disadvantages for the past 138-plus years.

LOCATION: The La Farge Public Library's COMMUNITY ROOM just past the restrooms and water fountain.

If you are not familiar with our "New Mexico Indivisibles for the National Popular Vote" group yet, check us out on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/NMIndivisiblesforNatlPopVote/).

We are based in Santa Fe but work state-wide and also are part of the national effort.

(Note: We are cross-listing the event elsewhere as well, so the attendee numbers shown here don't reflect the full count.)
