DC: Nevada’s Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak vetoed legislation Thursday to commit Nevada’s six electoral votes to a group of states agreeing to elect the president by popular vote.
Assembly Bill 186 would have joined Nevada to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, (NPVIC), which is an agreement between states to pool their electoral votes and voting results together into one aggregate pot.
“Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose,” Sisolak said in a statement obtained by the Nevada Independent.
