Denver (AP) - The House has approved a bill that would change the way Colorado's presidential electoral votes are cast.
Under the measure approved today, Colorado's nine electoral votes would go to the candidate who receives the most votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The current system awards all of Colorado's electoral votes to the candidate that wins the statewide vote.
The law would take effect only when enacted by enough states to reach a majority of the electoral votes.
The bill now goes to the senate.
