N.D. may cast one vote for president
It may sound speculative today but our only member of Congress may be casting the state's one vote for president in January.
In the event that none of the presidential candidates garner 270 votes in the Electoral College in the 2012 election, the choice will be thrown into the House of Representatives where each state will have one vote. It will take an absolute majority of states (26) to elect the president.
