Oklahoma: Vote NO on anti-Electoral College legislation

OPPOSE SB 906: “The Plan to Steal Presidential Elections”
The so-called National Popular Vote bill
Your Emails & phone calls are critical!

MESSAGE: Vote No on SB 906: The so-called National Popular Vote bill (a.k.a The plan to steal Presidential Elections). This will make smaller population states like Oklahoma meaningless in presidential elections.
 
Oklahoma’s Senate Committee on Rules recently APPROVED SB 906, the National Popular Vote legislation. The measure is now pending on the Senate floor. Please call your state senators TODAY. They need to hear from you. Tell them to vote NO on SB 906. Protect the Electoral College. It protects states such as Oklahoma.

SB 906 would essentially eliminate the Founder’s constitutional protection of the Electoral College in the selection of the President. States that join the National Popular Vote Agreement (NPV) are forced to vote for the national popular vote winner, no matter what. As a participant in NPV, it would not matter who Oklahomans vote for. Oklahoma’s electors would be given to the person “designated” as the national winner. Worse, the “national popular vote winner” would not need to obtain a majority in order to win the White House. Any simple plurality will do, even if this number is as low as 15% or 30%. (Such low pluralities occur in the French direct election system!) Such a situation will change the focus of candidates to large states and urban areas. A state like Oklahoma will become meaningless in presidential elections.
 
SB 906 has support from members of both political parties in Oklahoma. This bill could become law. It is important to make your voice heard before it is too late.
