October 2020 - We expect a big push, from the California-based National Popular Vote office, in Ohio in early 2021.
Ohio Representative David Leland introduced the National Popular Vote interstate Compact Bill, HB 70 in the House in February 2019. The Bill has not had any action taken on it by the House Federalism Committee since introduced. There appears to be no Senate Bill introduced.
OHIO is known a 'Swing State' in Presidential politics, but it is the type of "Purplish Red State" that the Democrats desperately need if they hope to ever activate their devious popular vote scheme.
Contact Ohio State Legislature Members
Demand that they take every action possible to STOP the NPVIC whenever it appears.

CINCINNATI, 4-01-2019 - Ohioans might vote to ditch Electoral College. Who's behind the effort? That's a mystery. By Jackie Borchardt, Cincinnati Enquirer. Background - SOMEONE on the Left goofed up and tried to go around the Legislature and put the NPVIC scheme on the ballot so that Ohio VOTERS could have a say in whether or not control of OHIO's Electoral Votes is given to Non-Ohioans. The people behind the NPVIC scheme quickly moved to put an end that referendum effort - it seems like they do not want voters in a State to have such a say. IRONIC, isn't it?
