The Delaware House of Representatives today handily passed the National Popular Vote plan by 23-12 with both Democratic and Republican legislators joining to establish elections where every vote is equal and the candidate with the most votes wins.

Of our nation's 99 state legislative chambers, 29 have passed the NPV plan in 18 states. It is now the law in five states representing nearly a quarter of the electroal votes necessary to trigger a national popular vote.
