Connecticut voted on Saturday to join states that want to pool their electoral college votes for the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote – the first state legislature to do so since President Donald Trump won the 2016 election.
The bill passed the state Senate 21-14, with three Republicans joining 18 Democrats. It passed the House of Representatives 73-71.
The article goes on to state the following:
If Democratic governor Dannel Malloy signs the legislation into law, as expected, Connecticut will be the 12th jurisdiction – 11 states and the District of Columbia – to enter the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Clinton won every jurisdiction in the pact already: California, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia. Connecticut, which Clinton also won, would be the first state to sign on since 2014, when New York joined.
