Bills are pending in several states to alter how that state elects presidential electors. The National Popular Vote Plan bill has been introduced so far this year in Arizona (SB 1042), Louisiana (SB 705 and HB 1095), Missouri (HB 39), New Hampshire (HB 148), and Oklahoma (SB 906).
Jurisdictions that have already passed the plan are California, D.C., Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Vermont, and Washington.
Bills are pending in Maryland and New Jersey to withdraw from the plan. The Maryland bill is HB 73; the New Jersey bills are A859 and S1626.
At least three states are considering the model bill that provides that if a presidential elector votes “unfaithfully”, he or she is deemed to have been disqualified and is automatically replaced by a back-up elector. Those bills are SB 200 in Indiana, LB 167 in Nebraska, and SB 309 in Oklahoma.
Virginia has a bill for each U.S. House district to choose its own presidential elector, SB 723. News stories say Republican legislators in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are thinking about similar bills, but so far they don’t seem to have been introduced.
