Why California has the most electoral votes?

There are a total of 538 electoral votes, and the number of votes each state receives is proportional to its size — the bigger the state’s population the more “votes” it gets. 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.

Does population determine electoral votes?

How the Electoral College Works. Each State is allocated a number of Electors equal to the number of its U.S. Senators (always 2) plus the number of its U.S. Representatives (which may change each decade according to the size of each State’s population as determined in the Census).

Do electoral votes change with population?

Since each state’s electoral votes are equal to its number of congressional and senate seats, a shifting population can affect the number of electoral votes each state has. So while the total number of electoral votes for the country remains the same (538), the number of votes each state has can change.
