Vermont could join more than a dozen other states in an effort to undermine the Electoral College system that has been in place since the nation’s founding.

On Tuesday, Sen. Chris Pearson, P/D-Chittenden, testified on behalf of S.122, a bill that would allow the canvassing committee to issue certificates of election to the electors nominated in association with the national popular vote winner in a presidential election.

“As folks know, I continue to work on the national popular vote around the country, so I pay attention to this quirky system that we have for electing the president,” Pearson told the Senate Committee on Government Operations.
