The NPVIC Language
The language of the NPVIC scheme is identical in all meaningful ways. Some variations appear to allow for differences in office titles, State-specific phrases, etc.
The State of Washington was the 5th State to join the plan, joining on its forst request in April 2009.
Washington State Law - The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact scheme. RCW 29A.56.300 States' agreement - Presidential election - National popular vote.
The Bill -
Text of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. This identical legislation is what has been entered into 48 State Legislatures since 2006 and PASSED by 15 legislatures, plus DC.
This one is from Illinois.
This NPVIC scheme has a self-defined activation threshold of 270 Electoral Votes, meaning that when they sign on enough States that have 270 Votes, they have agreed to begin seating their presidential Electors according to the will of a "national" popular vote tally, IGNORING the vote tallies of their own IN-State voters.
Set up a Google Alert for "Alaska National Popular Vote" &/or "National Popular Vote" or any other parameter, so you will be notified of any activity about that on the internet.

ABOUT THE MOVIE
“What if something you changed caused unintended consequences you never imagined?”
Safeguard: An Electoral College Story asks that question about presidential elections. How does the system really work? And what would happen if we changed the rules?
Alexander Hamilton and James Madison worked to create and defend the Electoral College system in the U.S. Constitution. The process is democratic—but it works in stages, and through the states. This design forces candidates to reach out across the country rather than focusing on just one region or group of population centers. And it keeps presidents from controlling elections—including their own reelections.
Publisher and former presidential candidate Steve Forbes, Princeton historian Allen Guelzo, and a host of experts explain why we really have the Electoral College, what it does, and what could happen if we got rid of it.
