Governor. Jim Pills has come out in favor of a bill introduced by a state senator seeking to bring Nebraska’s election system in line with the rest of the country.

This would bring Nebraska closer to 48 of our fellow states, better reflect the intent of the Founders, and ensure our state speaks with one voice in presidential elections,” Pillen said in a statement Tuesday.

He added: “I am calling on my Republican colleagues in the Legislature to forward this bill to my desk so that I can sign it.”
