"Members of the Legislature are trying -- for the third time -- to enact a bill supporting the election of U.S. presidents by national popular vote. The Senate Government Operations Committee voted 4-1 Tuesday in favor of the measure. Under the change the bill envisions, each state's electors -- the folks who cast ballots in the Electoral College -- would support the presidential candidate who tallied the most votes across the nation, not the most votes in individual states."
