Electoral votes are allocated among the states based on the Census. Every state is allocated a number of votes equal to the number of senators and representatives in its U.S. Congressional delegation—two votes for its senators in the U.S. Senate plus a number of votes equal to the number of its members in the U. S. House of Representatives.
Under the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution, the District of Columbia is allocated three electors and treated like a state for purposes of the Electoral College.
The allocations below are based on the 2010 Census. They are effective for the 2012, 2016, and 2020 presidential elections.
Total Electoral Votes: 538; Majority Needed to Elect: 270
