    You are correct, lotlizard. The NPV plan only becomes effective for member states once states with at least 270 electoral votes sign on. And of course, once that many states have signed up, what the rest of the states do is irrelevant--the popular vote winner becomes the Prez regardless.

    States with 132 EVs have already signed up.
