Why does California have the most votes in the Electoral College?
In nearly every state, the candidate who gets the most votes wins the “electoral votes” for that state, and gets that number of voters (or “electors”) in the “Electoral College.” For California, this means we get 55 votes (2 senators and 53 members of the House of Representatives) — the most of any state.
How many Electoral College votes does each state have?
The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Your state’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators.
