Nebraska's congressional districts
Census Bureau population growth estimates indicated that Nebraska will keep its third District seat after the 2020 census. An estimate from 2014 indicates that in 2020 Nebraska will have 1.957 million inhabitants, 90,000 inhabitants more than necessary for a third district.
Unlike every other US State except for Maine, Nebraska apportions its Electoral College votes according to congressional district, making each district its own separate battleground in US presidential elections.
