(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon is the latest state to join the National Popular State compact.  Governor Kate Brown signed the bill into law yesterday, making it the 15th state to join the compact that would award all of its Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote in presidential elections.  The laws do not go into effect until the electoral votes of the states passing it equal 270 or more, the number needed to elect a president.  With Oregon added, that total is now 196.  Two recent presidents have been elected by the Electoral College who did not win the national popular vote, George W. Bush in 2000 and Donald Trump in 2016.
