Posted at 6:26 PM, Jul 24, 2019

EL PASO COUNTY — The cities of Fountain and Monument have passed resolutions opposing a law that could give all of Colorado's presidential electoral votes to the national popular vote.

In March, Governor Polis signed a bill pledging the state electoral college to the winner of the national popular vote.

The resolutions come at the same time that a citizen campaign is seeking to repeal the law. The petition attached to that campaign has collected more than 185,000 voter signatures so far.

The deadline to collect signatures for verification for a ballot question is August 1.
