Best Answer

In U.S. Presidential elections, D.C. and every state except Nebraska and Maine gives 100% of their electoral votes to the candidate who gets the most popular votes within their state. In Nebraska and Maine, two electoral votes go to the candidate who gets the most popular votes within each state, and one electoral vote goes to the candidate who gets the most popular votes in each of the states' congressional districts.
