The Meeting of the Electors is scheduled for Monday, December 19, 2016
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

The Green Party-led presidential election recount in Wisconsin has turned up a surprising result: Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton, was short-changed on November 8.
Trump prevailed in the Badger State by 22,871 votes. The ongoing recount has widened his margin by 146 so far.
Just 23 of Wisconsin's 72 counties have completed their second go-round, but the president-elect has gained 105 votes. Clinton has lost 41.
Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton, is gaining votes in Wisconsin as a recount initiated by Green Party candidate Jill Stein is well underway

The other 49 counties have until Dec. 12 to finish their recounts so state officials can certify the result by Dec. 13. That would guarantee that Wisconsin's Electoral College votes will count when the presidential election is officially conducted in Washington on Dec. 19.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein paid $3.5 million to finance the recount despite winning just 1 per cent of the vote.
'We're not finding any problems with the machines,' Reid Magney, a Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman, told FoxNews.com on Wednesday.
'The Stein campaign wanted a recount because they thought there was some problems with our machines and that was not the case,' he said.

The Wisconsin recount began last Thursday, and has uncovered a handful of tiny errors – none of which could swing the statewide election in Clinton's favor.
'The overall results will not change,' Magney said. 'It's two votes here, two votes there.'
Recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan are tied up in court.
Michigan officials began a hand-recount on Monday but it will take a judge's ruling to continue it. That hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
The Michigan Court of Appeals has ordered state elections officials to toss out Stein's recount petition, ruling that she has no standing as an 'aggrieved' party since she has no chance of winning.
Trump won Michigan by about 10,700 votes.

Despite demanding recounts only in swing states where Clinton lost narrowly, Stein insists she only wants to verify the reliability of the results; she also insists voting machines could have been hacked by Russians
Despite initiating recounts only in three swing states where Trump beat Clinton by narrow margins, she has insisted her only goal is to verify the accuracy of the vote-counting.
Stein has suggested, with no evidence, that electronic touch-screen voting was susceptible to computer hacking.
'Let every vote count. That's what makes America great,' Stein said Monday outside Trump Tower in New York, where she was repeatedly interrupted by shouts of protest.
