Let’s cause US presidential candidates speak to Alabama issues

Have you ever wondered why presidential candidates never campaign in Alabama before a general election? It is because of the current winner-take-all electoral scheme in Alabama; our votes are taken for granted or just conceded. A couple of bills in the State House and Senate would change this and cause candidates to stop ignoring us and actually speak to the concerns and desires of Alabamians.  These bills  simply “would provide that the number of presidential electors any presidential candidate receives in Alabama would depend on what proportion of the popular vote the presidential candidate received.”
