For the past 25 years, Nebraska has awarded three of its five Electoral College votes on the basis of the popular vote in each of its three congressional districts. The two other votes go to the statewide winner.

The state has split its Electoral College votes only once: In 2008, the Omaha-area’s 2nd District vote went to Democrat Barack Obama while the rest of the state’s votes went to Republican John McCain.

Thanks. God bless.
