Hawaii has become the fourth state to join the interstate compact to replace the Electoral College with a national popular vote system. The plan now has the support of states representing 50 of the 270 electoral votes it needs to go into effect. Next up: Vermont, where Gov. Jim Douglas is deciding whether to sign or veto the compact bill.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
