Maine and Nebraska both use an alternative method of distributing their electoral votes, called the Congressional District Method.These two states reward individual Electoral votes to the candidate who wins the most votes in each Congressional district. The remaining two votes go to the candidate who received the most votes state-wide.This method has been used in Maine since 1972 and Nebraska since 1996, though neither state has had different winners in different Congressional districts or statewide. Consequently, neither state has ever spilt its electoral votes.The Congressional district method has been proposed as a nationwide reform for the way in which Electoral votes are distributed
