Buckman Bridge: National Popular Vote Interstate Compact

National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) : How to Make Your Vote Really Count

Step out for the evening on Monday, November 12th to find out about the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) and how it will ensure the presidential candidate with the most votes will be the one sworn into office!

But, it takes states whose electoral votes total 270 or more to put the NPVIC into effect.

How close is Florida with its 29 electoral votes to joining in?

Will Florida be part of this movement?
Do we want to be part?
What part can you play in this movement?

Join us to find out more.
When: Monday, November 12th, 7:00pm
Where: Buckman Bridge Unitarian Universalist Church Sanctuary

Open to the public so be sure to invite family, friends, neighbors, coworkers.
