How Many Electoral Votes are there in Urdu, Hindi & English

The number of electoral votes is derived by adding the number of Senators (100) plus the number of members in the House of Representatives (435) plus three (3) additional votes for the District of Columbia. The District of Columbia was awarded three electoral votes with the passage of the 23rd amendment in 1961. This adds up to 538 total votes.

To win the presidency, a candidate needs to get more than 50% of the electoral votes. Half of 538 is 269. Therefore, 270 votes are needed to win.

The total number of total electoral votes does not vary from year to year because the number of members of the House of Representatives and the Senate does not change. Instead, every ten year with the new census, the number of electors shifts from states who have lost population to states who have gained population.

This page lists the electoral votes for each of the 50 US states for the 2016 Presidential Election. The electoral votes are deteremined based on the 2010 US Census. The number of electoral votes for each state is equal to the sum of its number of Senators and its number of Representatives.

In modern times, the casting of electoral votes has been a purely ceremonial occasion where the results in the states have been rubber-stamped. But one idea spreading on left-leaning social media circles is that electors from states Trump won should be urged to support Clinton instead. A Change.org petition to this effect has more than 500,000 signatures.

Weirdly enough, this actually seems to be technically possible — the US Constitution does seem to give the electors the final say in picking the president.
