  •  The ironic thing about the NPV approach, (0+ / 0-)

    in my humble opinion, and simple lay person's understanding, is that changing to the NPV controlling the outcome, will ultimately hinge on the LAST STATE to enact NPV allocation of their electors.

    As the NPV idea reaches about 200 electoral votes, the real fights will play out at the state level.

    2. The law in each state says it doesn't go into effect until states with a majority of EVs have signed on.
    That will take us right to the same issue we already have - where the ultimate NATIONAL outcome depends on a state level decision, in only a handful of states, or on state level conduct of an election.

    And I think it will mean that all the games for setting aside votes, challenging votes, and provisional balloting, etc. will become HUGE factors in what are now "swing states."

    The NPV movement, in its current form, is just a different all-or-none EC system.  And it means the outcome of the election may not be known for many weeks after the election.
