BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Some states are joining together under the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact to do away with the electoral college.

So far, 15 states and the District of Columbia have approved the compact.

Those states and the District combined equal 196 electoral college votes. However, it won’t be approved until enough states join to equal the 270 electoral college votes it takes to win a presidential election.

Your News Leader reached out to the North Dakota GOP and the Senate Majority Leader for comment but have not received a response.
