OPPOSE HB1095

 
National Popular Vote will make Louisiana a ZERO in the Presidential Election

Critical: Please forward to everyone you know!

VOTE: Monday, May 7: Entire House of Representatives
MESSAGE: Vote No on HB 1095. The so-called National Popular Vote will make Louisiana a ZERO in the Presidential Election.   It does not matter who the people in the state vote for, Louisiana’s electors will be forced to vote for the presidential candidate who has been "designated" as the national popular vote winner.
Contact: Entire House of Representatives:
  • Email your concerns to the entire House of Representatives. (Because of limits by various email providers, we have grouped email addresses in chunks of 20 to make it easier to send your concerns and avoid “bounce backs” due to emailing too many people at one time.)

HB 1095 does away with the founder’s Constitutional protection of the Electoral College in the selection of the President by circumventing the Constitution. When a state joins the National Popular Vote Agreement (NPV), it does not matter who the people in the state vote for, their state’s electors will be forced to vote for the presidential candidate who has been "designated" as the national popular vote winner. Essentially, it is a vote-stealing scheme. See article below. The winner does not have to have a majority but just a simple "plurality," which could be as low as 15-30%. This will make small-population states like Louisiana, meaningless ZEROs in Presidential Elections.
 
We are in great danger of HB 1095 passing in Louisiana. It is important to make your voice heard before this dangerous bill becomes law.
