Without a single Republican vote in the legislature, the Colorado House today passed the bill to join Colorado to the National Popular Vote pact, which would tie Colorado’s nine electoral votes to the national popular vote, regardless of how Colorado voted. This is an affront to Colorado’s voters and every single one should be angry. Or, as our friend and radio host, Ross Kaminsky, tweeted:

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. The problem with tying Colorado’s vote to the popular vote is that the popular vote is pretty much determined by heavy urban areas, including Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. While Colorado has absorbed many residents from these cities, we’re still very different from New York and we shouldn’t outsource our vote to the Empire State.

The second most appalling thing about this vote is how vocally supportive Colorado’s new Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, has been about disenfranchising Colorado voters. While former Secretary of State Wayne Williams took the initiative to expand opportunities for Colorado’s voters to participate in the electoral process, Griswold tweeted the following last night:

Sure, it definitely empowers the individual voters…in Chicago, LA, and New York, but definitely not in Colorado. Time to dust off your pitch forks, PeakNation™. This legislature is only going to get worse.
