California Electoral Votes
How many electoral votes does California have?

The electoral votes from California and the other states are used to elect a President and Vice President every four years. Whichever Presidential candidate gets the majority of the electoral votes becomes the President.

California is given one electoral vote for each California congressional district, in addition to one electoral vote for each of the two California Senators. In other words, the number of electoral votes California has depends on how many Representatives California has in Washington, D.C.

The number of Senators California has does not change, but the number of California congressional districts is based on the last census.

Like every other state, California has 2 Senators. Furthermore, California currently has 53 congressional districts. Thus, California has a total of 55 Representatives in Washington, D.C.
