State Sen. Toni Boucher, state Rep. Gail Lavielle and state Rep. Tom O’Dea have explained their opposition to the National Popular Vote Compact.
The compact, which was supported by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and passed by the legislature earlier this month, makes Connecticut allocate its electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the most popular votes. It would take effect only if enough states signed on to guarantee that the national popular vote winner wins the presidency.
