Nebraka & Maine dish out EC votes based on how the prez vote goes in each distict.
Nebraka & Maine have it right, and I wish CA would follow their lead.
If they did, Kerry would end up 30 EC votes instead of 54.
As a side note Ca would have been originaly 2 states but all the population was up north with the gold rush and new states were by default non-slave states.
The south would not have allowed it.

(Sorry Kerry, you're 3 decimal places adrift: 3,000,000 not 3,000 "displaced"/murdered SE Asians)
Oh man. If Aanold could get that passed in California it would be great. I think it is a good idea. Like the balance in the EC, bigger voting groups get more votes, but smaller voting groups are still represented. If my vote could make the difference in the selection of an elector, that would mean a lot to me.
