Voter Information

Between elections, there are still things you can do to increase your understanding about voting and the democratic process.  Here, as well as on our Voter Resources page, you can begin your investigations.

A topic that is drawing a lot of attention is establishing a NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE.  A National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  

There was a virtual conference held on this  topic recently.  For more information about this topic and to access the video, click here
