STEP 2: GIVE OF YOURSELF

Donate at least a small portion of your energy and time to ACTIVELY support the National Popular Vote as a FOUNDATIONAL cause so that, first, we establish a way to count presidential votes that does not render 75% of the country politically irrelevant and then, with a president in place that the majority of us elected, all of the other things we care about likely will find a much more conducive environment for succeeding. It's not enough to support the National Popular Vote only in our hearts and minds.

STEP 7: SUPPORT THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE BILL IN THE REMAINING STATES
