Event description
Join Dr. Jack Nagel and Colorado National Popular Vote to hear how the recent passage of NPVIC empowers Colorado voters.

About this Event

Colorado has recently joined the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, but not everyone is happy about it. Opponents of the compact are spreading misleading information about the bill's impact on Colorado voters.

We need to fix back with reality-based facts.

Come join us for a fascinating Brown Bag Lunch discussion with Dr. Jack Nagel about the National Popular Vote, it's benefits for all Coloradans, and election reform in general.

Dr. Nagel has recently written about debunking the myths that the Electoral College always benefits Republicans and that the national popular vote would necessarily benefit Democrats, and that Republicans' small-state advantage is an optical illusion.

Please bring your own lunch. Bring a National Popular Vote skeptic!

This event will be held in the basement meeting room of the Smiley Branch of the Denver Public Library.

He has spoken on the subject to community and civic groups in the Philadelphia area. Recently he has written blog posts for the pro-NPV group, Making Every Vote Count.

He is a senior research advisor to the national reform group, FairVote, and assisted them in defending Ranked Choice Voting against legal challenges in Minnesota and Maine. In 2016-17, Jack served on a statewide committee re-assessing electoral reform issues for the Pennsylvania League of Women Voters; and he was a delegate representing the LWV Central Delaware County chapter at the 2017 LWVPA and 2018 LWVUS conventions.
