Washington State recently enacted a law joining the pact for a National Popular Vote, bringing the total to five (MD, NJ, IL, HI, and WA). Currently, it is also being considered in CT, NV, and MA. While many recent articles are largely favorable toward the NPV, the National Popular Vote is not universally popular: Efforts are underway in MD, NJ, and WA to repeal the pact. See also the second National article below....
