Texas Electoral Votes
How many electoral votes does Texas have?

The electoral votes from Texas 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.

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

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

Like every other state, Texas has 2 Senators. Furthermore, Texas currently has 36 congressional districts. Thus, Texas has a total of 38 Representatives in Washington, D.C.

Therefore, the answer to the question "How many electoral votes does Texas have?" is 38.
