Abstract:     
This article is part of the upcoming Review of Selected Legislation, which is a yearly issue of the McGeorge Law Review that reviews various bills that California enacted over the previous year. This article examines Chapter 188 (introduced as AB 459), which entered California into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, a compact that, if enacted by states cumulatively possessing 270 electoral votes, would work to bypass the electoral college and instead determine the outcome of presidential elections by using the national popular vote. The paper discusses the bill enacting the compact in California, including arguments in support and against it, expected and possible effects, and potential constitutional challenges.
