North Carolina may eliminate its winner-take-all method of electoral vote distribution. 
The 15 electoral votes could be distributed with a more proportional method. A House election law committee backed a system that could give a candidate one electoral vote for each congressional district he or she carries. The statewide winner would get the remaining two votes. Democratic supporters hope the change would encourage Democratic presidential nominees to compete in North Carolina. Republicans accuse Democrats of using the bill to attempt to eliminate their hold on the state’s electoral votes. The bill, which has already met Senate approval, next heads to the full House.
