used to elect a President and Vice President every four years.
Whichever Presidential candidate gets the majority of
the electoral votes becomes the President.|
Georgia is given one electoral vote for each Georgia congressional
district, in addition to one electoral vote for each of the two

Georgia has depends on how many Representatives Georgia has in
The number of Senators Georgia has does not change, but the number of
Georgia congressional districts is based on the last census.

currently has 14 congressional districts. Thus, Georgia has a total of
16 Representatives in Washington, D.C.
Therefore, the answer to the question "How many electoral votes does Georgia have?" is 16.
