Minnesota Electoral Votes
How many electoral votes does Minnesota have?

The electoral votes from Minnesota 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.

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