We SUPPORTED HB-1176 !
3-08-2021 - Regrettably, a Pro-EC and Anti-NPVIC Bill, HB-1176, sponsored by Representative Becky Currie, has also now died in Committee.
February 2021 - In February, BOTH the House Bill and the Senate Bill that would enable the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact scheme DIED in Committee!
The Left's efforts in Mississippi to negate our Electoral College have ended for 2021.
On January 8, 2021, Senator David Blount, D-29, introduced the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact scheme in the Senate. The Bill has been assigned to TWO (2) Senate Committees - the Elections Committee and to the Accountability, Efficiency, Transparency Committee.
We expect a push, from the California-based National Popular Vote office, in Mississippi in 2021. They have hired a half-dozen highly-paid former Republican State lawmakers and 'consultants' for the express purpose of convincing Republicans that a national popular vote will help their Party specifically.
With a Republican Governor and a solid Republican General Assembly, Mississippi is the type of Red State that the Left needs in order to reach their Collusion Threshold of 270 Electoral Votes to activate the NPVIC Compact.
The National Republican Party stands strongly opposed to the NPVIC scheme in its Party Platform and Mississippi Republicans also have a good track record of following the Republican Party Platform.
However, because of Mississippi's good Constitutional track record, it's strong appreciation for States Rights and its government make-up, we give Mississippi an 'Electoral College State rating and not likely to fall for the NPVIC scheme. Because the legislation is introduced, we HAD changed the status in Mississippi to "Low Risk".
Because the Mississippi Legislature killed the NPVIC scheme, we have returned the State's status to it's rightful, sovereign and Constitutional Electoral College status!
Contact Mississippi State Legislature Members
Demand that they take every action possible to STOP the NPVIC whenever it appears.

US NEWS, 01-05-2021 - Mississippi Just Got Rid of Its Electoral College-like State Election Process. By Dallas Breen, US News. This article describes a State of Mississippi law, in force since 1890, that required Statewide Office holders to ALSO win a majority of their House Districts, in addition to the Statewide popular vote. This doesn't actually impact Presidential elections, but the concept of the 130-year-old Mississippi State law is worth considering in other States.
MISSISSIPPI, 11-03-2020 - Mississippi 2020 election results. Why don't the Electoral College and popular vote always march up? An (incomplete) explanation of how the Electoral College works.
