National popular vote bill raised – hearing coming soon!

National Popular vote bill raised – hearing to be scheduled

We’re excited to announce that the national popular vote bill (bill number coming soon!) was raised by the Government Administration and Elections (GAE) committee on Friday! That means that the bill will be drafted and there will be a hearing in Hartford in the near future.

Sign up for email updates for details on the date and time of the hearing – it could be as soon as the week of February 26th. Due to the hard work of our grassroots group last year, 7 of the committee members co-sponsored the bill last session. We’ll post information on how to write testimony for the upcoming hearing but in the meantime here is some guidance about what you can do.

What you can do:

  1. Call or email state representative and state senator (find them here) and let them know that you support the bill. Be sure to BCC npvconnecticut@gmail.com so we can track the number of supportive emails.
  2. Share this post and spread the word – once we know the date and time, we’ll be holding a rally at the state house the day of the hearing.
  3. Email members of the GAE committee (and BCC npvconnecticut@gmail.com) voice your support. In particular, let House committee chair Representative Dan Fox know you’re in favor and thank our supporters. Here are the GAE committee members:
