What state has the most votes in the Electoral College?

  • Texas
  • New York
  • California correct

    With 55 electoral votes, California makes up nearly 20 percent of the total votes required for the victory of a presidential candidate. The number of electoral votes your state has depends on the number of Congressional representatives it has: one vote for each member of the House of Representatives and two for your Senators. The larger your state's population, the more representatives it has. A presidential candidate is required to achieve at least 270 electoral college votes to win the election.
