Pretty good quiz, interesting topic...but I would suggest un-alphabetizing the states to provide more of a challenge.

Washington D.C. isn't a state!

Waaaaaay too much time. Many sporclers can name all 50 in under 2 minutes.

Washington, DC isn't a state, it's a district...but I'm not sure how you rename the quiz to make it appropriate..."Name the political divisions that gave their electoral votes to Barack Obama in 2008." That's awful clunky.

Washington DC should be a bonus answer, I think

since a large amount of sporclers are expected to know every country and capitol of the world, i say leave washington dc, and let our big brains try to figure it out. and as jasonc_22 said, its nearly impossible to come up with an appropriate name

You should have Nebraska be a bonus answer, since he did win 1 of Nebraska's votes!

DC has it's own electoral votes, it should be on here.

I agree with Shay: 5 minutes is definitely too much time. I'd say cut it down to 2.

You aren't just typing in names of states, you have to know the ones Obama won. Yes, somebody could type in everything, but that isn't the point of the quiz.
