Organizers behind the effort to put a repeal of the National Popular Vote (NPV) on the ballot say they are pleased with the results to date and are confident they will meet the signature requirement with plenty of time to spare....

The referendum began after the General Assembly passed and Gov. Jared Polis signed a bill that would add Colorado to a compact among states pledging all the member states’ Electoral College votes to the winner of an unofficial national popular vote. The compact goes in to effect if enough states to sign onto the pledge so that the Electoral votes add up to the 270 needed to elect a president.
