Electoral College News from Nebraska: And, what next?

Ballot Access News reports that even thought most of Nebraska’s Electoral College votes went to Bush, Obama has now won “one Electoral College Vote” from that state. Ballot Access News goes on to explain the history of some states having proportional apportionment of their Electors, rather than winner-take-all (which history was stated incorrectly in a mainstream article on the Nebraska vote.)

It is also of note that Green Party member Asa Gordon has a lawsuit in the hopper to force Vice President Cheney not to accept winner-take-all Electoral College votes from states where there is no rule or law that those votes be winner-take-all. It appears that Asa’s lawsuit is going forward, since Asa was recently updating greens around the country on this matter on a recent conference call. More information about Asa Gordon’s lawsuit can be found at: www.electors.us.

Obama Wins One Electoral Vote in Nebraska

November 8th, 2008

According to this newspaper story of November 8, Barack Obama has carried the 2nd U.S. House district in Nebraska, so he gets one electoral vote from Nebraska. The margin was 1,260 votes, although that will change, since ballots are still being counted. The article doesn’t give the minor party and independent presidential vote in the district, nor does the Secretary of State’s web page.

The newspaper story’s portrayal of states that split their electoral votes in the past is misleading. The story seems to say only a few states once elected presidential electors by district. Actually, long ago, more states elected electors by district than statewide. For example, in 1796, six states elected electors by district, but only three states elected them statewide, and in seven states the legislature chose them.
