Awarding Presidential Electors

This awards Electors for U.S. President by Congressional District to the candidate who has a majority of the votes in that district (using Instant Runoff).  An additional two electors would be awarded to the candidate who has a majority of votes statewide using Instant Runoff.  

 

Nebraska and Maine already use this method.  There is nothing wrong with the Electoral College – it protects the smaller states from dominance by the larger ones.  The problem is the way the Electors are awarded.  The “winner-takes-all” method (especially when awarded by a plurality, and not an Instant Runoff majority) leads to negative campaigning.
