One state’s legislature is looking for a change as a recent vote will remove the state from he electoral college.
Lawmakers in Nevada voted to consign their six electoral college votes to the national popular vote, instead of the popular vote of the state.
The state Democrat run assembly and Senate voted yes on the measure and it now goes before Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak.
Sisolak is predicted to sign the bill into law.
This means that he people of Nevada now have far less say in who is voted to run the country. Given that the the state makes up less than 1% of the U.S. population, Nevada residents can expect to have almost no influence on where the states electoral votes go.
This isn’t the first state to decide to do away with the electoral college. It will join 14 other states as well as Washington D.C. in handing over the electoral votes to the popular vote.
