146th General Assembly
House Bill # 55

Primary Sponsor: D.E. Williams Additional Sponsor(s):    Sen. Henry
CoSponsors: Reps. George, Kowalko; Sen. Peterson
Introduced on : 03/23/2011
Long Title:AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 15 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE AGREEMENT AMONG THE STATES TO ELECT THE PRESIDENT BY NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE.
Synopsis:Under the U.S. Constitution, the states have exclusive and plenary (complete) power to allocate their electoral votes, and may change their state laws concerning the awarding of their electoral votes at any time. Under the National Popular Vote bill, all of the state's electoral votes would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The bill would take effect only when enacted, in identical form, by states possessing a majority of the electoral votes—that is, enough electoral votes to elect a President (270 of 538).

Current Status: Senate Administrative Services/Elections Committee   On   06/08/2011
