Soper, Gilmore to debate National Popular Vote Bill
By Press Release: Published June 19, 2019 Delta County Independent
Will the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) improve how we elect the President of the United States? Colorado House Representative Matt Soper and Delta County Planning Commissioner Dick Gilmore will debate that very question on June 29, from 1-3 p.m., in the banquet hall of CB’s Tavern at 334 Main Street in Delta. The event — sponsored and hosted by the Libertarian Party of Delta County (LPDCO) — is free to the public and no RSVPs are necessary.
The event will be divided into four segments: opening arguments, rebuttals, public Q&A, and closing arguments. The event will be moderated by Jay Stooksberry, chair of LPDCO, to make certain that each participant is granted equal time, as well maintain a decorum of civility and professionalism. Straw polls will be take place before and after the event to see which debater made the most persuasive argument. Participants are encouraged to bring prepared questions for the Q&A session.
For more information about the event, please contact Jay Stooksberry at email@example.com.
On March 15, Governor Jared Polis signed Senate Bill 42 into law, officially adopting Colorado’s membership in the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC). Colorado became the 11th state to sign the compact, which potentially binds the state’s Electoral College votes to the results of national popular vote, as opposed to the statewide polls, for President of the United States. The compact would only go into effect once states representing 270 or more electorates adopt similar pieces of legislation. As of this publication, states representing 189 electoral votes have agreed to the join the NPVIC.
