National Popular Vote: Separating Fact from Fiction

Come join the Weld County League of Women Voters and Patrick Rosenstiel of the National Popular Vote to learn more about the campaign to ensure that every person's vote for the presidency is equal. Refreshments will be served.

Patrick Rosenstiel presently serves as senior consultant to the National Popular Vote campaign. As CEO of Ainsley Shea, a Twin Cities-based public affairs firm with a worldwide impact, Rosenstiel is a nationally recognized figure on the topic of National Popular Vote.

Colorado passed the National Popular Vote bill in the 2019 legislative session, and Governor Polis signed it into law on March 15, 2019. In November, 2020 Colorado voters will be asked to confirm that they are committed to a popular vote for the presidency.
