Barack Obama has won a single Nebraska electoral vote in post-election counting, the first time the state has split the vote since a 1991 law allowed the practice, the AP reports. No Democrat has gotten a vote in the state since Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Only Nebraska and Maine allow their electoral votes to be split. In Nebraska, 2 votes go to the overall winner, while 3 others are decided by district. Unofficial results today showed Obama leading well above the recount threshold in the 2nd Congressional district.
