National Popular Vote

Nebraska is unique in how we address the Electoral College system. While other states simply allow for the state popular vote to control all of the electors, we split it into the state's three congressional districts. At the end of the day, that means that our three electoral votes can be split and go to either of the candidates for President.

But despite our best efforts, it doesn't change the fact that we are largely ignored in favor of "battleground" states during the Presidential election. And it results in votes in those states having more weight than those in Nebraska. We think the solution is the National Popular Vote system, which make individual voters matter, instead of just voters from swing states.
