I love the way Maine handles their electoral votes. First, it makes EVERY vote matter, unlike in upstate NY where your vote for president hardly matters compared to NYC. Other ares in huge states with huge cities, can steal a few in the rural areas. Second, it would make candidates have to campaign EVERYWHERE, not just battle ground states... Imagine Houston and Dallas being in play for Dems, imagine Western NY being in play for the GOP. It sure would make it far more interesting... And in writing this post, I just thought someone should make a RISK like game where you have to control states in order to win an election which takes place in an hour from game time... 60 minutes to control as many states as possible by deploying staffers, and commercials... I love RISK, so... I think that Idea would ROCK!
