    Colorado Senate Passes Bill Nixing Electoral College in Favor of Popular Vote

    The Democratic-majority Colorado state Senate passed a bill this week that would give the state’s electoral votes in presidential elections to the candidate who wins the popular vote instead of the Electoral College.

    Colorado’s Senate passed the bill in a 19-16 vote Tuesday along party lines.
    The bill would mandate that the state’s members of the Electoral College vote for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.
    Under current state law, the state’s electoral college members cast their vote for the candidate who wins the election in Colorado.

    The legislation, sponsored by state Sen. Mike Foote (D-Lafayette), would have allowed Colorado to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact with 11 other states and the District of Columbia.

    “This really isn’t a red versus blue idea. This is about making sure that the president of the United States is elected by the entire nation, not just a handful of ‘battleground states’ that get to decide our presidential elections under the current system,” Foote said of the bill in a statement. “All of Colorado’s voters should be heard, regardless of whether or not we are considered a battleground state.”

    If enough states sign onto the compact, it would change the outcome of presidential elections by awarding all electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote.

    But the bill is not likely to become law unless the Colorado House approves and enough states agree to the compact.

    The states which have agreed to the compact only add up to 172 electoral votes, falling short of the 270 electoral votes needed for a candidate to win the Electoral College.

    Colorado Senate Republicans have also raised concerns about whether the proposal is constitutional, saying that it is unconstitutional to link the state’s electorate to public opinion.

    52 people are talking about this



    “It says your votes and your choices are no longer your own,” GOP state Sen. Owen Hill said in a statement. “We are going to tie your representation to what the other 49 states choose.”

    Democrats have taken aim at the Electoral College after the 2016 presidential election, when President Trump won the election against his Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton but lost the popular vote by three million votes.
    Trump took home 304 electoral votes, while Clinton had 227 votes.

    Clinton herself called for abolishing the Electoral College in September 2018, claiming the country should get rid of it because Trump was a terrible president who threatened American democracy.

    Other Democrats turned their calls for getting rid the Electoral College into action. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) introduced a bill in Congress in January seeking to abolish the Electoral College.

    GOP says 5,000 non-citizens voting in Colorado a 'wake-up call' for states

    BY DEBBIE SIEGELBAUM - 03/31/11 05:23 PM EDT


    Republicans on the House Administration Committee want to shore up voter registration rules in the wake of a Colorado study that found as many as 5,000 non-citizens in the state took part in last year’s election.

    Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.), the panel’s chairman, called the study “a disturbing wake-up call” that should cause every state to review its safeguards to prevent illegal voting.

    “We simply cannot have an electoral system that allows thousands of non-citizens to violate the law and vote in our elections. We must do more to protect the integrity of our electoral processes,” Harper added.

    Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican, told the panel that his department’s study identified nearly 12,000 people who were not citizens but were still registered to vote in Colorado.

    Of those non-citizen registered voters, nearly 5,000 took part in the 2010 general election in which Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet narrowly defeated Republican Ken Buck.

    Colorado conducted the study by comparing the state’s voter registration database with driver’s license records.

    “We know we have a problem here. We don’t know the size of it,” Gessler said in testimony to Administration’s Elections subcommittee.

    He told Harper that Colorado would look to create a registration system that would allow his department to ask that some people provide proof of their citizenship in writing.

    If individuals did not respond to the request, their registration as voters would be suspended.

    Rep. Charles Gonzalez (D-Texas) raised doubts about the reporting, noting that the study itself said it was based on inconclusive data and that it was “impossible to provide precise numbers” on how many people who were registered to vote in the state were not citizens.

    Gonzalez asked Gessler, a former prosecutor, if he would have pursued a court case on such evidence.

    Gessler responded that the goal of the study was to expose voter registration issues and pursue administrative avenues to resolve them.

    “We don’t have a screen for citizenship on the front end when people register to vote,” he said.

    Executive Order to deem ALL drivers licenses issued to illegal aliens Null & Void.

    Stop the states harboring, aiding and abetting illegal aliens.

    Audit the IRS, welfare and food stamp offices. FIRE government employees awarding illegal aliens taxpayer funded benefits.

    Prosecute the Governor's of these States and the Mayor's of these cities.

    This is not funny! This is out of control and these politicians needs to be put in jail.
