Notes Nebraska distributes its electoral votes proportionally, with two at-large electors representing the statewide winning presidential and vice presidential candidates and one elector each representing the winners from its three Congressional districts. For the first time since adopting this system, Nebraska's five electoral votes were split between the two major party tickets. The McCain-Palin ticket won Nebraska overall and received the two at-large electors, as well as the electors from the First and Third Congressional Districts, where McCain-Palin also won. However, the Obama-Biden ticket won the Second Congressional District and, thus, received its one elector.
