used to elect a President and Vice President every four years.
Whichever Presidential candidate gets the majority of
the electoral votes becomes the President.|
Florida is given one electoral vote for each Florida congressional
district, in addition to one electoral vote for each of the two
Florida Senators. In other words, the number of electoral votes
Florida has depends on how many Representatives Florida has in
The number of Senators Florida has does not change, but the number of
Florida congressional districts is based on the last census.

currently has 27 congressional districts. Thus, Florida has a total of
29 Representatives in Washington, D.C.
Therefore, the answer to the question "How many electoral votes does Florida have?" is 29.
