HB 1482 and Narional Popular Vote Initiative

HB 1482 may not be high on the list, but it certainly is an important one. 212,00 Virginians - Republicans, Democrats, independents and others - voted for the candidate who did not win the Presidency due to the distortion of votes by the electoral system which vitiates the one person, one vote principle. In effect, the 212,000 votes were not whole votes but akin to the 3/5 compromise in the Constitution.
