Iowa Electoral Votes
How many electoral votes does Iowa have?

The electoral votes from Iowa 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.

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