April Combined Meeting

We are working to schedule as a remote meeting the League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties' April Combined Meeting with guest speaker Dr. Seth Masket, Director, Center on American Politics at Denver University, speaking on The National Popular Vote Compact.

Did you know that the loser of the popular vote has won 5 out of 45 presidential elections? It has happened twice just in the past 20 years because our Electoral College actually elects our president. One solution to this problem is to amend the U.S. Constitution to get rid of the Electoral College.

Our guest speaker Dr. Masket will share information about the origins of NPV and its strengths and potential problems. He will then lead a discussion / Q and A period.

This meeting will be free and open to the public. We will encourage members to include friends and family and help publicize the meeting once we're arranged for this meeting to be held online.
