Election Chaos Adds Fuel to Campaign for a National Popular Vote to Elect U.S. President

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris officially won the Electoral College Monday, as electors met in their respective state capitols to formalize their victory.

President Trump continued to claim without evidence he was the victim of a massive conspiracy to rig the election.

Republicans across the country attempted to undermine the election results, and right-wing supporters threatened violence.

John Koza, chair of National Popular Vote, says the chaos of the 2020 election is further proof that the United States should abandon the Electoral College system as it is currently constituted and elect presidents by popular vote instead.

"The flaws of the current system have become more and more apparent to people," he says.
