LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Electoral College in Nevada could be gone before the next presidential election.

AB 186, also known as the "National Popular Vote" bill, just passed the Nevada Senate and heads to the governor's desk.

If Governor Sisolak signs the bill, instead of giving its 6 electoral votes to the candidate who gets the most votes in Nevada, the state would give the votes to whoever wins the national popular vote.

CNN Reports other members of the pact are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington state and the District of Columbia.
