H 5575, the National Popular Vote bill on the House side, does away with the founder’s Constitutional protection of the Electoral College in the selection of the President. 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. 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 Rhode Island meaningless in Presidential Elections.
 
We are in great danger of H 5575 passing in Rhode Island. This bill passed in the Senate 30-6 in 2011, but didn’t make it through the House. It is important to make your voice heard before this dangerous bill becomes law.
