Electoral reform in Nebraska refers to efforts to change the voting laws in the Great Plains U.S. state that is nestled amongst South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming. Nebraska and Maine have the distinction of being the only two states that allow for a split of their electoral vote; two electors go to the winner of the statewide popular vote, and the others go to the winner of the popular vote in each of Nebraska's three Congressional districts. To date, there have been no bills introduced in the Nebraska Legislature to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. In 2005, the city councils of Sidney and Kimball called on Governor Dave Heineman to restructure the state water policy task force by allowing proportional representation for people who live in municipalities.[1]
