I know they left it to the states to decide how their electors were selected, but I wasn't aware they had differences in how they votes were cast.

You may be correct though, because they certainly have bastardized the process alone the way. There must have been some liberty to start the movement away from Districts into state-wide counts. At that point, having actual people cast an electoral vote is pointless. It's just a matter of counting up the "points'. Not sure that was the intent at all. It was designed to allow the people and the states to partner in electing the President. Now it's just a popularity or "Free stuff" contest.


I see California and DC have joined this compact. Anyone want to bet that the first time they have their votes go to a conservative, this whole deal will fall apart?

Valid point, but when that time comes, we'll all be too busy dodging "fallout" from pigs that can fly to remember the bet.

If they are going to apply their electoral votes to whomever wins the popular vote, I can see some VERY pissed of liberals in Hollywood when California applies it's electoral votes to Ted Cruz, Rand Paul or Ben Carson.

.....whether HIllary is on a scheduled flight that day or not \:D

Really don't think much will come of this. They've got about all of the states the will get (maybe a few more). No where near what they need.

 Quote:
New York is the 10th state to come aboard. The District of Columbia, with three electoral votes, has also signed the agreement.

The other states are Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Vermont, California, Rhode Island, and Washington.

Morris said all of the jurisdictions supporting the compact backed President Barack Obama in the 2012 election.

It also has been approved by at least one legislative body in these states: Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Oregon.

They have 10 solid blue states and DC on board. Won't change much. Voter fraud in the swing states is a much bigger issue.
