REPORT: State House REJECTS popular vote proposal
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by PRESSHERALD.COM:
AUGUSTA — Maine’s House is now opposing a proposal to join states pledging to award Electoral College tallies to the national popular vote winner in presidential elections.
The bill received pushback in a 68-79 vote Monday in the House.
The article goes on to state the following:
That vote’s not enough to join the National Vote Interstate Compact. The agreement would only kick in when enough states join to reach 270 electoral votes.
The House just rejected (again) the bill to add Maine to the states pushing to elect presidents via the national popular. The vote was 68-79, which is almost opposite of the 77-69 vote last week. #mepolitics
