Changes To Pas Electoral Vote System Proposed

12.04.12 | Sarah Harnisch

Pennsylvania is reconsidering how it tallies elections. State Senate Republican Leader Dominic Pileggi on Monday renewed his call for Pennsylvania to revamp the way it awards electoral votes. Pileggi wants to see a method that would have given GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney eight of the state's 20 votes. He advocates breaking away from the traditional winner-take-all policy and replacing it with a system that divides the electoral votes between the candidates based on the share of the popular vote they receive.
